In 1997 Rebecca Brown's mother, Barbara Wildman Brown, became ill with cancer. Here, the author traces, in sparse prose, the slow, gradual erosion of her mother's health, her dignity and her life. In 17 short chapters, from "anaemia", "twilight sleep" and "metastasis", to "unction", "cremation" and "remains", the author describes the family's journey through her mother's illness and death. Written unsentimentally, and sometime with painful honesty, "Excerpts From a Family Medical Dictionary" is a moving commemoration of a life and death.
