Summary
On New Year's Day 2013, Weingarten asked three strangers to pluck a day, month, and year from a hat. Sunday, December 28, 1986, was by conventional measure a most ordinary day. Weingarten spent the next six years proving that there is no such thing: that Sunday between Christmas and New Year's turned out to be filled with comedy, tragedy, implausible irony, and foreshadowing of momentous events yet to come. Lives were lost. Lives were saved. Lives were altered in overwhelming ways. Is there even such a thing as "ordinary" when we are talking about how we stumble our way through the daily, daunting challenge of being human? -- adapted from jacket
