"[West] shines a harsh light on a society that forces a son to go through so much pain simply to relieve a parent's suffering. And he also communicates a softer message about his relationship with his mother and their unselfish love for one another."
From the Publisher
Annotation When John West's parents, both former medical professionals, became terminally ill, they asked him to help them die. This is his memory of that traumatic experience, which documents his anguish over their decision, the difficult logistics of the actual "suicide," and the lessons he has taken away as he moves on with his own life.
Editors Note A touching memoir tells of one son's struggle to help his gravely ill parents, both medical professionals, with committing suicide to end their suffering, the impact it has had on him, and his feelings with regard to the personal choice that was made versus the law of the land.
