Can negativism sweeten life’s small joys in the face of illness and death?
‘I’m doomed, but we all are.’
A self-proclaimed ‘negativist’ with a cynical outlook, Edward Buchanan has been defying the odds since he outlived doctors’ predictions by eight years following a hepatitis C diagnosis. Ed’s latest diagnosis, however, seems much less escapable: cancer has left him with perhaps just weeks to live. An intimate and moving portrait of the eccentric 57-year-old California musician, Perpetual Ed reveals a precarious combination of cantankerous negativism and a sensitive, humour-laced humanity.
