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.

Praise for this book

"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

"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

"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
