Myfanywy Horne in conversation with Sally Loane about Dying : a Memoir. On learning that his illness was terminal, historian Donald Horne began dictating his experience of dying, and his resulting journal is full of courage, honesty, insight and humour. These essays which include Horne's last thoughts on some of the big human questions, have been refined by his wife and long-time editor, Myfanwy, who has also written her own inspirational account of Donald's final weeks.
