When the Feast is Finished

 
9780007482603: When the Feast is Finished

A moving account of the death of Brian Aldiss’ wife Margaret.

Margaret Aldiss had suffered from a minor heart complaint for several years, but it was a condition that did not seem to threaten or greatly impair her enjoyment of life. Tragically, however, this problem masked the onslaught of something far more serious. In November 1997, three months after pancreatic cancer had been diagnosed, Margaret died in the arms of her husband at their home in Oxford. Based on journals they both kept, When the Feast is Finished is Brian Aldiss’s almost unbearably moving account of those last weeks of Margaret’s life.
