If you have not seen Akira Kurosawa's subtle 1952 masterpiece "Ikiru" (To Live) about a terminally ill Tokyo bureaucrat, I recommend it highly, especially in light of "How to Think Like a Medieval Monk".


I wonder if the title is deliberately evocative of Anton Chekhov's 'The Death of a Government Clerk'. http://centerforfiction.org/forwriters/the-model-short-story...
