Book Description
Publication Date: August 28, 1998
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.

Editorial Reviews
From Library Journal
In this book TV journalist Rollin chronicles her mother's two-and-a-half year illness with ovarian cancer, from the diagnosis to her decision to end her unrelenting pain and nausea through suicide. The details of Rollin's role in helping to carry out her mother's last wish by providing information, support, and the means necessary to act upon the decision are widely known through prepublication media coverage. As in her earlier book, First You Cry (1976), about her own breast cancer and mastectomy, Rollin's crisp reportorial writing contrasts sharply with the painfully personal and highly controversial subject matter. Because of the publicity surrounding its release and the current interest in euthanasia, Last Wish is sure to be requested often. BOMC featured alternate.

"The book is not really about death. It is, instead, a loving tribute to Mrs. Rollin's spirited progress through life" (Baltimore Sun) "One of the most remarkable testiments of our time, a document of personal compassion and public importance. . . .It embraces you and makes you want to embrace the writer for her courage in both the act and its recounting." (Cosmopolitan) "Searing...an extraordinary story of love tested to its limits. It reads like a thriller-only better, because thrillers rarely achieve the kind of pathos and humanity of Rollin's story." (Detroit Free Press) "Brilliant." (New York Post) "A story told with compassion, anger, humor, and most importantly, profound love." -- San Diego Tribune
