Some people survive conditions of horrendous physical extremes —lost at sea for six months, fallen into a deep crevasse on Mt. Everest, seriously injured deep in the Amazon jungle —while others do not. The survivors often report that what saved them was a curiously interconnected experience of Will and Grace. In a culture that’s always telling us how weak we are —how vulnerable to sickness and death, how susceptible to all manner of physical and psychological damage –these people have much to teach us about coping with our own lives.
