The new book is “In Love”  a memoir by Amy Bloom (Random House) and Amazon.  It chronicles the story of her husband’s Alzheimer’s and their trip to Switzerland to get assisted dying at his request.  The Swiss call it ‘accompanied suicide’, which is legal there.

On page 63 author Amy Bloom says that LifeCircle in Switzerland is closed. I am assured today by Dr.Preisig that this is incorrect – they’re taking patients. ?
