"This is a true story about a little boy and his mother at the beginning of life and a man and his mother at the end," writes Malcolm, a New York Times correspondent. Like Le Anne Schreiber's Mid streams ( LJ 12/89), which balanced Schreiber's account of her mother's death with her own search for spiritual renewal, Malcolm presents two parallel journeys . As a journalist, he covers major stories on euthanasia, negotiated deaths, and the right to die; as a middle-aged son dealing with a dying 75-year-old mother being kept alive by artificial means, he faces painful questions that most of us put off for that inevitable someday. At times, this results in an uneasy mix of memoir and journalism, but Malcolm's moving description of his decision to allow Nature to take its course and to let his mother go makes this a timely book in this age of Karen Anne Quinlan and Nancy Cruzan. Recommended for public library collections.
