My life before, during and after Hemlock
Wednesday, December 10, 2014  5:27:00 PM

by Derek J Humphry

Good Life, Good Death, my memoir, is now also on Kindle

Good Life, Good Death Book Description:

For more than 30 years Derek Humphry has trail-blazed the right to die movement in America and the world. He founded the Hemlock Society USA, pioneered the Oregon Death With Dignity Act and wrote the bestselling books Jean’s Way and Final Exit.

To know why he has maintained this struggle for choice in dying against powerful religious and political forces it is necessary to understand the whole man. In this candid memoir (a paperback original) he tells of his broken family, wartime experiences as a boy in England, and rising from the lowest to the highest rungs of journalism on two continents.

He tells the moving story of his first wife’s terminal cancer and her way of ending it by assisted suicide which later became the model for the Oregon law. Painful episodes from his second marriage and the much publicized divorce are frankly detailed. Today Derek Humphry is regarded as the grand old man of a euthanasia movement in which he remains deeply involved. A dual citizen of the USA and the UK, he has lived in Oregon for 22 years.

In paperback, ebook and now on KINDLE
