Gillian Rose was a star academic, acclaimed as one of the most dazzling and original philosophers today (Edward Said was among those who said we MUST publish this). But Gillian also had cancer, and the news that she only had months to live made her determined to explore who she was, and what she had been seeking so long. LOVE'S WORK is as vivid and carefully structured as a novel, circling like memory from the small fierce girl torn between a demanding father and genial, feckless stepfather to the adolescent confronting her Jewish inheritance, from the passionate friend to the searcher for truth, from the sensual woman in love to the patient in the hospital bed. Passionate funny, heartbreakingly honest, LOVE'S WORK faces death in a way that is almost exhilarating: genuinely unforgettable.
