The classic love story of a young couple divided by the death of the wife. Jean Humphry's suffering is so great that she asks her husband, Derek, to help her die. He brings her lethal medications, which she takes in his presence. This l978 book sold worldwide, a bestseller in Britain and Australia, presaged the rise of the euthanasia movement in the l980s. Now a 'cult book'.
