Suffering finds its home in the gap between our lived reality and the circumstances we’d wish for, instead. Gravity is about how to live in, or narrow, that gap – and how to choose. From illness to breakups to climate crisis, Gravity takes a full-hearted and honest deep-dive into how we face life in all its complexity.

Dr. Lucy Kalanithi is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University and the widow of the late Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of the #1 New York Times-bestselling memoir When Breath Becomes Air. Find her on Twitter at @rocketgirlmd.
