Only Temporary, is both a deeply personal memoir and a series of meditations on life, love, faith, gratitude, and mortality. In closely examining his own triumphs, mistakes, and less-than-ideal relationships since his miraculous recovery from a supposedly incurable leukemia more than twenty years ago, Handler zeroes in on the most profound question facing every human being: How can a person live well with the knowledge that time is limited? In doing so, Handler has created a poignant and wildly funny rumination on the ironies of human existence. Structured as a collection of incisive and probing autobiographical stories , It? Only Temporaryis a startlingly candid portrait of one man? struggle to find love and happiness within a life he knows he? lucky just to have. By turns hilarious and heart-wrenching, blunt and shocking, Handler? defiantly unconventional memoir ultimately succeeds as both a stirring love story and a classic coming-of-age tale. It? Only Temporarycelebrates the transformation from boy to man?ven if it took Handler more than forty years to get there.
