About the Author

DR. SEAMUS O'MAHONY is a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Cork University Hospital. He is associate editor for medical humanities of the Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and is a regular contributor to the Dublin Review of Books. He is the author of The Way We Die Now.


"A valuable and thoughtful treatment that effectively draws on O'Mahony's professional insights as well as his Irish Catholic upbringing to provide glimpses into Western society's relationship with mortality." --Library Journal

"The 'over-medicalization' of modern dying is at the core of O'Mahony's criticism; he maintains that doctors might better help their dying patients by giving up 'the quest to conquer nature' and returning 'to a core function of providing comfort and succor.' O'Mahony's clear-eyed analysis is important, poignant, and immensely humane." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review"A searingly honest, humane and challenging book to prompt a wider conversation about death and dying." --The Guardian UK
