"The author's multiple voices--scholar, sociologist, victim--provide an academic, yet personal, professional, yet poignant, story...Readers face...the 'contradictory meanings' that an especially articulate woman brings to the final chapter of her life." --Women and Health "Paget's book is stunning. It's a tribute to the invulnerable human spirit. The woman burned like a flame; obviously she died well, because she lived well; she was loved because she was loving. The book is tremendously sad, but it isn't depressing; somehow, one is left with a sense of human possibility." --Joan Cassell, author of Expected Miracles: Surgeons at Work
