Editors Note Betty Rollin's riveting account of her struggle to come to terms with her mother's last wish is more than a thoughtful examination of the ethical, spiritual, and technical aspects of assisted suicide. It is also a celebration of her imperfect but loving 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. First published a decade ago to great controversy and acclaim, Last Wish will have new relevance to a new generation of people concerned about their own freedom of choice at life's end and those facing responsibility for aging or ill friends or relatives. The book is also essential, provocative reading for physicians, policymakers, spiritual leaders, and citizens now debating the legal status of physician-aid-in-dying across the United States. The PublicAffairs edition includes a new foreword, questions for thought and discussion, and a helpful resource guide.
Editors Note 1 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.
Editors Note 2 Describes the author's seventy-six-year-old mother's prolonged bout with cancer and her ultimate decision to end the agonizing pain by committing suicide
