Product Overview

Three days after terrorists slammed airliners into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, David Horowitz, as disoriented as the rest of us by these cataclysmic events, discovered that he had prostate cancer. As America declared war on terror, Horowitz began treatment, emerging months later with a "reprieve" from his disease. He brought back with him this remarkable book of hard-won insights about our country and ourselves - how we get to our ends and what we learn along the way.
An at times heart-catching departure from the polemics and social criticism that have made Horowitz one of our most controversial public intellectuals, The End of Time is a meditation on subjects ranging from what parents inadvertently teach us in their deaths, to the forbidding realities of the cancer ward, to the way in which figures like Mohammed Attar use death as a strategy in becoming like gods of their own mad creation. Hovering protectively over these ruminations is Horowitz's wife, April, whose stubborn love reached into the heart of his medical darkness and led him back toward the light of this work.
