Summary

At the age of 60, Cory Taylor was dying of melanoma-related brain cancer. With her illness no longer treatable, she began at the start of 2016 to write about her experiences and, in an extraordinary creative surge, wrote what would become Dying: A Memoir.

This is a brief and clear-eyed account of what dying taught Cory: amid the tangle of her feelings, she reflects on the patterns of her life and remembers the lives and deaths of her parents. She tells us why she would like to be able to choose the circumstances of her own death. Dying is about the vulnerability and strength, courage and humility, anger and acceptance that it takes to live a good life and say good-bye to it in peace.

Critic reviews

"The book rings louder in my imagination the more time I spend apart from it...Taylor's prose is clear and direct, with flashes of surpassing loveliness...it has a startling offhand grace." (New York Times)
