Description
"How do we learn to die?" Drawing upon her personal experience of working with terminally ill people in a palliative care unit, the author of The Warmth of the Heart Prevents Your Body From Rusting tells the stories of these patients, alike in their search for dignity and comfort in their final days. One of the many lessons we can learn from such individuals, suggests Marie de Hennezel in this bestselling memoir, is that by confronting our own mortality we are better able to live in the moment. First published in France in 1995, Hennezel's preface to the 2012 edition features an account of a memorable meeting she had with Princess Diana just months before Diana's death.

"Marie de Hennezel's particular ability as a writer lies in her ability to bring readers close to the bedsides and show them—with feeling but without sentimentality or morbidity—just what 'accompanying people in their last days' means. Uniquely illuminating."—The Mail on Sunday
