    With her peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but spacious and timeless stories, Alice Munro illumines the moment a life is shaped - the moment a person turns out of an accustomed path and into another way of being. Suffused with her clarity of vision, Munro"s stories paint a vivid and lasting portrait of how extraordinary the ordinary life can be. (Bestseller)

      Dear Life is a painful read at times, because it forces you to reflect on some of the worst situations anybody ever has to face. However, the book is also a compassionate gem, full of its own episodes of sweetness.4/5(10). Dear Life will be published by Little, Brown in the UK in January Pre-order: Waterstones, Amazon. Praise for Dear Life “A truly wonderful book. Dying is rarely easy, nor is writing about it - but Rachel Clarke does so perfectly, with neither sentimentality nor sensationalism, and instead with realism and kindness. Read it.” Henry Marsh.

    Dear Life is a landmark book by one of Australia’s most powerful writers. “The elderly, the frail are our society. They are our parents and grandparents, our carers and neighbours, and they are every one of us in the not-too-distant future.   Dear Life is a book about the vital importance of human connection, by the doctor we would all want by our sides at a time of crisis. It is a love letter – to a father, to a profession, to life itself. My Review of Dear Life. A doctor’s personal view of life and death. What a book.

    Dear Life is the inspiring, sometimes heartbreaking and yet deeply uplifting story of the doctor we would all want to have by our side in a crisis. The hospice where Rachel works is, of course, a world haunted by loss and grief, but it is also teeming with life. Just after my mother had grabbed me up, as she said, for dear life. The daughter lived not so far away from me, in my adult life. I could have written to her, maybe visited.
