About the Author

Hilary Elfick is the author of six collections of poetry and a novel. She has been a hospice trustee for twenty years, and was International Co-ordinator, BT Voices for Hospices, 1992-97. She is a mother and grandmother and has also worked as a teacher and broadcaster. David Head has worked in hospice chaplaincy for fifteen years and is currently rector of six rural parishes in Norfolk. He has been a member of the International Work Group on Death, Dying and Bereavement since 1988.


'Unflinchingly honest and intimate, Elfick and Head find the words to express the inexpressible: not only the humiliating indignities that accompany human decline and death and the ambivalent feelings evoked by intimacy, but the experience of caring for, parting from, and staying with the dying.' - Sandra Bertman, Research Professor of Palliative Care, Boston University 'These poems show the reader the human side of care... They must be essential reading for professional carers as well as for patients and families.' - Andrew Hoy, Chairman of the Association for Palliative Medicine of Great Britain and Ireland
