Is a full life worth an early death?

Jack Ostruck loves hang gliding, but when someone he loves dies in a crash, the grieving mother demands that Jack come to the funeral and explain why flying is worth her child's death. Jack's search for the answer will take him to mortuaries, mountaintops, an eagle's nest, the heart of a storm, and finally to a funeral, where he delivers the answer.

First 150 pages are available free on Scribd.

"There is gusto in Exult. Quirk dares ask some of life's most fundamental questions: Why do we die, and after we are gone, will we have meant anything at all? How should we spend the time we have been given on this earth?"
-- Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns

"I loved this bird's-eye look into the curious subculture of hang gliding‚ but Joe Quirk's book is about so much more. Tumbling into his wonderfully told story of life, death, friendship and love is a thrill not to be missed."
-- Lolly Winston, author of Good Grief and Happiness Sold Separately

"Exult is a soaring novel about soaring -- but its nominal subject, hang gliding, is only a cover for its real goal: to express, in words that have the compression and punch of the best poetry, what it means to be truly alive."
-- Mike Chorost, author of Rebuilt: How Becoming Part Computer Made Me More Human, winner of the 2006 PEN award for Creative Nonfiction.

"Twenty pages in and my adrenaline surges, heart in my throat. Joe Quirk's prose is exquisite and his plotting impeccable. Instead of a five star review, this book gets a galaxy."
-- Erika Mailman, author of A Woman of Ill Fame and Witch's Trinity, which was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award
