Description - Last Wish by Betty Rollin

At a time when tempers flare over the Oregon assisted suicide law and Jack Kevorkians physician-aid-in-dying, Last Wish, Betty Rollins groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, is due for a rereading. Last Wish is an intimate, fiercely honest memoir of a daughters struggle to come to terms with her terminally ill mothers decision to die. More than a examination of the ethical, spiritual, and technical aspects of assisted suicide, Last Wish is also a celebration of Rollins imperfect family, a passionate testament to her mothers 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.
