The Good Day I Died: The Near-Death Experience of a Harvard Divinity Student

Overview

In 2006, Desmond Kon died, and came back to life. This is better understood as a near-death experience (NDE). Fresh from studying world religions at Harvard, Desmond’s NDE in Somerville, Massachusetts, shared remarkable consistency with other documented NDE accounts, such as encountering otherworldly beings, altered time-space realms, and the classic tunnel of light. Post-NDE symptoms included paranormal sightings. Framed as a quasi-memoir, The Day I Died is constructed as a self-administered interview, allowing the account its moments of deep intimation. Completed with the aid of the Creation Grant from Singapore’s National Arts Council, The Day I Died represents Desmond’s most confessional writing, relating the story of his death, and his transformed life after his return.
