Death is something we avoid talking about. I empathise with the author. As a medical consultant I have been professionally involved with these dilemmas and personally, as my father also had an inoperable brain tumour. His initial denial and subsequent events are almost a mirror image of this book. It may be a difficult topic and read but it is honest and is a short true account that will face us many of us. I strongly recommend this.
It came to my attention as a recommendation by Amazon who are promoting it as a Kindle Single - a novella length non fiction work.
Despite the subject matter, dealing with the death of a parent dying from a terminal illness, the book is an extremely easy read which flows coherently from the author.
This is not a book which is going to be adapted into one of those gushing Hollywood movies. Thank god. It offers much more than that. A truth which is often blindly brushed over through looking for meaning and answers where there are often none.
I was absorbed in it because ten years ago I lost my dad, and reading this helped me make sense of my own experience. (There were some parallels especially: the practicalities, adjusting to the gradual decline of a strong man, the final stages of wishing it would just end then when it did, feeling rather lost as all that care was no longer required.)
Everyone who loses a dearly-loved parent has to adjust her/his whole 'world-view' and it takes a long time. Finding that you were not by any means the only one to go through such an experience, helps a lot, even ten years on from it.

A beautifully written and moving account of death of a loved one, and in this case, an amazing human being. I'm only sorry that the author hasn't written more for me to read.Published on 6 Jun. 2013 by PB
