Text Of Review: This fictional novel is a riveting story. My wife and I read it together and hardly stopped for a break before we finished it. David Lawrence is an accomplished storyteller and poet. I have read several of his novels and a collection of his poetry, but A Good Death is, I believe, his finest story.

As usual, his characters emerge from an acutely attentive mind, rich in psychological insight with great attention to detail. The highly unusual circumstances of the protagonist final months of life draw the reader into a scenario that one could scarcely imagine. The author wisely fashions his characters out of personalities and circumstances with which he the author is thoroughly familiar. He handles them with the love and caring that is so much like his own manner of being that I, knowing him, find them completely credible and compelling.

In a death-denying society, this novel will certainly prove a challenging and invaluable, helpful companion down that unknown corridor which we all must walk. We happily recommend this novel and both high entertainment and precious experience regarding that most important part of our journey.
