Coda, Paperback Book


"Coda" is Simon Gray's powerful account of the year in which he struggled to come to terms with terminal lung cancer.

Darkly comic depictions of the medical team are set against joyful accounts of sunlit days with this beloved wife, Victoria.

Written with exceptional candour and a poignant reluctance to leave this world behind, Simon Gray's "Coda" is as life-affirming as it is heartrending.

Sadly, "Coda" is being published posthumously, as Gray died in August 2008.
