Radical Acts of Love: Twenty Conversations to Inspire Hope at the End of Life

by Janie Brown - £9.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786899033 | ISBN 10: 1786899035

A profoundly moving account of an oncology nurse’s conversations with the dying.
 
In Radical Acts of Love, Janie Brown, oncology nurse and counsellor, offers a sensitive and wise insight into our final moments by recounting twenty conversations she has had with people who were dying.

"Janie Brown demonstrates the power of a book to transform, in fact to turn things upside down. She turns death into life, despair into hope, sorrow into joy and pain into love with these twenty astonishing encounters with the dying... Unforgettably wise, kind and wonderful"
(Stephen Fry)
"A book about love as much as it is about death … This is a glorious book that I would not hesitate to give to anyone facing an unwelcome diagnosis or prognosis of their own or of a loved one. It is kind and practical. . I learned so much and feel glad that it exists and convinced that many people will be helped by Brown’s generous sharing of more than 30 years’ experience of working with the dying."
(Cathy Rentzenbrink, the Times)
