End of Absence Cover

WINNER OF THE 2014 GOVERNOR GENERAL’S LITERARY AWARD FOR NON-FICTION

“This is a lovely, direct and beautifully written book that will make you feel good about living in the times we do. Michael Harris is honest in a way I find increasingly rare: clear, truthful and free of vexation. A true must-read.”
-Douglas Coupland, author of Worst. Person. Ever. and Generation X

The End of Absence is one of those rare books that changes how you think about your own existence. It’s wise, humane and full of original insights about life in the crazy/beautiful connected world we’ve built for ourselves. I read it with pen in hand, underlining the whole way.”
-William Powers, author of Hamlet’s Blackberry
