How to Die Young

How to Die Young

A Memoir

As so many other twenty somethings of her time, and the twenty somethings that came before her, Angelina Fanous would wake up each morning with the same panicked question running through her mind. What is happening? From the outside her life was the embodiment of an ultimate urban fantasy. Successful career at one of the most exciting magazines for her generation, VICE, check. Apartment in Williamsburg, check. Youth, beauty, check and check. And yet she realized that she wasn’t happy, that the decade she had spent chasing the dream of where she was now, had lead her to a place that she didn’t want any more. Then, at 29, after a year of treatments and wishing for it to be anything else, a third specialist confirmed a diagnosis of ALS.

That news shifts Angelina’s entire perspective. Not overnight of course, but after packs of cigarettes, an array of mind altering substances and meaningless affairs, she found a way to view her life and her happiness differently. The Art of Dying Young is the story of the time just before, then during, and after her diagnosis—that transformation and devastation told with a wrenchingly honest voice and gripping tone.

The Art of Dying Young is Angelina’s attempt to share what her journey has taught her, to inspire others to overcome the same listlessness, the same vague dissatisfaction that can be hard to shake when you’re in a pivotal time in life.
