The Last Sweet Mile, Allen Levi’s memoir of great loss and enduring faith, is re-releasing in paperback edition through Rabbit Room Press this summer.
When Allen Levi’s brother Gary was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, neither realized they were about to embark on the best year of their lives. More than mere brothers, Allen and Gary were best friends, life-long bachelors, one a lawyer turned singer-songwriter, the other a globe-trotting missions worker. Their relationship was one of rare and powerful beauty, and in this rich memoir, Levi captures the small yet telling details of a life lived to the fullest—right up to the finish line.
Like Sheldon Vanauken’s A Severe Mercy, The Last Sweet Mile gives us a tale of both great loss and enduring faith, demonstrating that love is a refining fire, brotherhood a holy gift, and death itself a doorway to a wedding feast. The Last Sweet Mile is not only a testament to the life of Gary Levi, it is a testament to the hope that shaped and sustained him.
The Last Sweet Mile releases in paperback on June 3rd, 2022 at the Rabbit Room Store, and pre-orders are now available.
You’re invited to join Allen Levi in Nashville on June 24th for a book release event, to be held at the Rabbit Room’s North Wind Manor. Click here for tickets.
