When My Time Comes: Conversations about Whether Those Who Are Dying Should Have the Right to Determine When Life Should End
Author
Diane Rehm
ISBN
9780525654759
From Diane Rehm, renowned radio host--one of the most trusted voices in the nation--and best-selling author: a book of candor and compassion, addressing the urgent, hotly contested cause of the Right-to-Die movement, of which she is one of our most inspiring champions. Soon to be a public television documentary of the same name, featuring the author. Through interviews with terminally ill patients, and with physicians, ethicists, spouses, relatives, and representatives of those who vigorously oppose the movement, Rehm gives voice to a broad range of people who are personally linked to the realities of medical aid in dying. The book presents the fervent arguments--both for and against--that are propelling the current debates across the nation about whether to adopt laws allowing those who are dying to put an end to their suffering. With characteristic even-handedness, Rehm skillfully shows both sides of the argument, providing the full context for this highly divisive issue. With a highly personal foreword by John Grisham, When My Time Comes is a response to many misconceptions and misrepresentations of end-of-life care; it is a call to action--and to conscience--and it is an attempt to heal and soothe our hearts, reminding us that death, too, is an integral part of life.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Diane RehmPublisher: Knopf Publishing GroupPublished: 02/04/2020ISBN: 9780525654759Pages: 256Weight: 0.90lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.90w x 1.00dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 12/01/2019Publishers Weekly 12/09/2019Booklist 01/01/2020 pg. 19Library Journal 02/01/2020 pg. 106
