When the Feast is Finished

by Brian Aldiss

Part of the The Brian Aldiss Collection Series

When the Feast is Finished Synopsis

A moving account of the death of Brian Aldiss' wife Margaret. Margaret Aldiss, Brian's wife of thirty years, passed away quickly after a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Based on journals they both kept, When the Feast is Finished is a moving account of those last months of Margaret's life. Alongside Margaret's bravely honest journal entries, Aldiss draws a heartbreaking portrait of the sustaining force of love in the face of a devastating illness. As husband and wife describe those last few precious months, they give thanks for the thirty years of joy and happiness they shared, the children of whom they are so proud, and the chance to say goodbye.
