The Long Goodbye – Hardback




Long Goodbye: The Deaths of Nancy Cruzan by William H. Colby. This story of the Cruzan family’s 7-year-long legal battle to win the right to disconnect their daughter, Nancy, from “life-sustaining” treatment is essential reading. Nancy was left in a permanent vegetative state with no hope of recovery after a 1983 car accident. Despite having expressed her wish never to be allowed to languish in such a condition, Nancy’s doctors, right-to-life groups and Missouri politicians would not allow her to die with dignity. Colby, the Cruzans’ attorney throughout this landmark case, has written a remarkable page-turner. “Long Goodbye” testifies to the passion, frustration, outrage and grief that motivated the Cruzans to take their case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
