About the Author

Janie Brown is an author, a leader in oncology nursing, the founder and executive director of a non-profit organisation called the Callanish Society (callanish.org) in Vancouver, Canada, and a visionary for new global conversations about living, healing, death and dying. Her first book, Radical Acts of Love: How We Find Hope at the End of Life, was published by Canongate in the UK, and by Doubleday in Canada in March 2020, at the start of the global pandemic. Janie was raised in Glasgow by Scottish parents, and emigrated to Canada in 1984. She has worked as an oncology nurse and counsellor in Vancouver for over thirty years.



'Janie Brown demonstrates the power of a book to transform, in fact to turn things upside down. She turns death into life, despair into hope, sorrow into joy and pain into love with these twenty astonishing encounters with the dying . . . Unforgettably wise, kind and wonderful' - STEPHEN FRY

'A book about love as much as it is about death . . . This is a glorious book that I would not hesitate to give to anyone facing an unwelcome diagnosis or prognosis of their own or of a loved one. It is kind and practical. . I learned so much and feel glad that it exists and convinced that many people will be helped by Brown's generous sharing of more than 30 years' experience of working with the dying' - CATHY RENTZENBRINK, The Times

'Brown is a deeply compassionate and sensitive interlocutor and these accounts brim with humanity . . . Insightful, wise and lifeaffirming, Brown's book teaches us that sharing someone's final weeks is perhaps the most radical act of love we can offer' - Observer

'Compassionate, sensitive and heart-warming tales of the one thing in life that's certain' - PROFESSOR STEPHEN WESTABY, Sunday Times bestselling author of Fragile Lives
