A stroke partially disabled Butler’s 79-year-old father, so when a new pacemaker kept his heart going, it was a mixed blessing. As other ailments exhausted him, he only wanted it all to end. Based on her award-winning New York Times Magazine article, Butler’s book about her father’s decidedly not good death asks difficult questions about the goals of medicine and offers the Slow Medicine movement as an alternative.
