I Never Met David Rakoff

I never met David Rakoff, but like so many other readers and NPR listeners I felt that I knew him. And, like so many fans of the author and humorist I was deeply grieved by the sad news that he had lost his long struggle with cancer.

Regular listeners of the radio show This American Life have probably heard the recording of Rakoff’s last appearance on the show when he read his story “Stiff as a Board, Light as a feather”. But even if you never heard of David Rakoff, you will surely be moved by the video of the performance that was recorded on May 12,2012.
