Spanning three generations, The Long Goodbye takes us deep into the lives of an Australian family as they survive record-breaking floods, outlast epic droughts and face the unforgiving realities of life on the land.
Told with astounding lyricism, warmth and humour, this is a deeply moving memoir about the unbreakable bonds of marriage, love and family. And it poses the most heartbreaking moral dilemma of all: when a loved one is suffering, is euthanasia the answer?

"A devastating and beautiful memoir about a family and the painful tangle of life, loss and love." (Susan Johnson)
"One of the best books I've rad in a long time"
This book is extremely well-written, but I wouldn't necessarily call it enjoyable to read. It's very emotionally exhausting.
Ther were many memorable moments.
It's not a book of tidbits.
Once I started I couldn't put it down.
