'M. J. Hyland dragged herself out of an impoverished childhood to become a lawyer and an acclaimed writer. Then, aged 40, she was struck by a debilitating illness. Here, the Irish-Australian novelist opens up for the first time about her multiple sclerosis diagnosis, and why she no longer has a pact with dying.' (Editor's abstract)
