In the fall of 2005, Mark C. Taylor, the controversial public intellectual and widely respected scholar, suddenly fell critically ill. For two days a team of forty doctors, many of whom thought he would not live, fought to save him. Taylor would eventually recover, but only to face a new threat: surgery for cancer. "These experiences have changed me in ways I am still struggling to understand," Taylor writes in this absorbing memoir. "After the past year, I am persuaded that I have done enough fieldwork to write a book that combines philosophical and theological reflection with autobiographical narrative. Writing is not only possible but actually seems necessary." Field Notes from Elsewhere is Taylor's unforgettable, inverted journey from death to life. Each of his memoir's fifty-two chapters and accompanying photographs recounts a morning-to-evening experience with sickness and convalescence, mingling humor and hope with a deep exploration of human frailty and, conversely, resilience. When we confront the end of life, Taylor explains, the axis of the lived world shifts, and everything must be reevaluated. As Taylor sorts through his remembrances, much that once seemed familiar becomes strange, paradoxical, and contradictory. He reads his experience with and against ghosts from his past, recasting the meaning of mortality, sacrifice, solitude, and abandonment, along with a host of other issues, in light of modern ways of dying. "You never come back from elsewhere," Taylor concludes, "because elsewhere always comes back with you."

«Οι άθλοι είναι τρεις και θα εκτελεστούν καθ’ όλη τη διάρκεια του σχολικού έτους. Οι πρωταθλητές θα δοκιμαστούν με πολλούς και διάφορους τρόπους –οι μαγικές δυνάμεις τους, η ανδρεία τους, η αντίληψή τους και φυσικά η ικανότητά τους ν’ αντιμετωπίζουν τους κινδύνους». Το Τρίαθλο Μαγείας πρόκειται να διεξαχθεί στο Χόγκουαρτς. Στο Τρίαθλο μπορούν να συμμετέχουν μόνο μάγοι μεγαλύτεροι από δεκαεπτά ετών. Όμως αυτό δεν πτοεί το Χάρι που ονειρεύεται ότι θα νικήσει το διαγωνισμό. Έπειτα, στο Χάλοουϊν, όταν το Κύπελλο της Φωτιάς κάνει την επιλογή του, ο Χάρι βλέπει με κατάπληξη και το δικό του όνομα μεταξύ των επιλογών του μαγικού κυπέλλου. Θα αντιμετωπίσει θανατηφόρους άθλους, δράκους και σκοτεινούς μάγους, αλλά με τη βοήθεια των φίλων του, του Ρον και της Ερμιόνης, μπορεί και να τα καταφέρει –ζωντανός!
