Inhaltsangabe: At a time when tempers flare over the Oregon assisted suicide law and Jack Kevorkian's physician-aid-in-dying, Last Wish, Betty Rollin's groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, is due for a rereading. Last Wish is an intimate, fiercely honest memoir of a daughter's struggle to come to terms with her terminally ill mother's decision to die. More than a examination of the ethical, spiritual, and technical aspects of assisted suicide, Last Wish is also a celebration of Rollin's imperfect family, a passionate testament to her mother's character and courage, and a compelling argument for the right of the terminally ill to a humane and dignified death. The PublicAffairs paperback edition includes a new foreword, questions for thought and discussion, and a helpful resource guide.
Vom Autor: "When Last Wish was first published, the issue of physician-assisted suicide hardly existed. Now it has become one of the major issues of our time. . . .And however one feels about it, how-to-die is an issue that concerns us all. I know that from my mail. Some people I hear from are neither sick nor old. But they worry about a system of medicine and the kind of mindless technology that sometimes prolongs life, even if the person 'living' wants desperately to die. . . .My mother felt she was lucky to get out of life when she did. She wanted others to have that choice as well."
