Publisher's Summary

In Radical Acts of Love, Janie Brown, oncology nurse of 30 years and counsellor of cancer patients with terminal diagnoses, recounts 20 conversations she has had with the dying, including those personally close to her. Each conversation uncovers a different perspective on and experience of death, while at the same time exploring its universalities. 

As well as offering an extremely sensitive and wise insight into our final moments, Brown offers practical ways to facilitate the shift from feeling helpless about death to feeling hopeful; from fear to acceptance; from feeling disconnected and alone to becoming part of the wider, collective story of all our mortality.

Beautifully read and beautifully written

Janie’s voice is soothing and compassionate and her words are gentle and informative. I’ve really enjoyed her calm narrative of her work in helping not only those at end of life but also those who will be, and have been, left to manage their grief.
