HUR VILL DU DÖ? – OM MAKTEN ÖVER LIVETS SLUT

DEPARTURES – THE POWER OVER THE END OF YOUR LIFE

BY JERSILD, P. C.

By turns enlightening, provocative and brutally frank, Departures examines euthanasia with astonishing candour and unflinching honesty, beautifully written by 86 year old prize-winning novelist and former physician P.C. Jersild.

Who really has the power over the end of life? And who should have it? Doctors, lawyers, priests, politicians – or ourselves? Voluntary euthanasia for the terminally ill is a statutory right in a growing number of countries.

Based on personal and professional experiences, Departures is a history of voluntary euthanasia and a consideration of the individual’s ability to choose a dignified death.
