John Lantos takes up the subject of the deaths of children. Attempting to make sense of the deep suffering and “radical uncertainty” that accompany such deaths, he appeals to both narrative and empirical studies. Lantos shows that how we think about critically ill children and how we care for them and their parents are important to an art of dying. Care of dying children remains an important representation of society’s response to the most desperate suffering.
