About this deal

If you're a member of a trade union you might find that the union offers a free wills service to members.

Another term for Maynard’s act is “physician-assisted suicide,” but Grube rejects that concept wholeheartedly. Ali Smith’s persuasive introduction highlights how controversial Simone de Beauvoir’s account was when it first appeared, a brief, but detailed account of the last few weeks of her mother’s life – or maybe better described as her long, drawn-out death. Powerful, touching and sometimes shocking, this is an end-of-life account that no reader is likely to forget.

Samaritans Ireland is a charity registered in the Republic of Ireland (20033668) and incorporated in the Republic of Ireland as a company limited by guarantee (450409). So intense, so real was the emotional depth of the romance in this book, that I had to stop halfway through book 2 because it was just too much. This memoir-essay is fluid and open, and with unflinching honesty describes a feeling and thought that many are often too afraid to say - especially when it comes to speak of a loved one post-death. As she looked at that future, Maynard decided that she wanted to end her life on her own terms with the help of legal medication.

There are “death cafes,” informal coffee hours where friends and strangers get together, eat cake, and talk about dying. She has a worldly perspective similar to Cleary’s, and different from the expectations that most Americans have on the topic of death. The writing is eloquent and brutal, pulling no punches as she tells the detailed and terrifying truth of her mother's demise.De Beauvoir is clearly, acutely, aware of this absurdity yet feels unable or powerless against the weight of the system in which she and her family are now enmeshed.

If you are not a child or adult at risk, we respect your freedom to make your own decisions, including the decision to take your own life.Surely hospice workers, physicians, oncologists, “right-to-die” advocates, cancer-cell biologists, bioethicists, and the like have a special view on dying.
