And Finally

Hugh Pym

As a retired brain surgeon, Henry Marsh thought he understood illness, but he was unprepared for the impact of his diagnosis of advanced cancer. As Marsh navigates the transition from doctor to patient, he is haunted by past failures and describes his frustration with illness and old age. He wonders about the mysteries of the brain, the beauty of the natural world  and his love for his family. And Finally is ultimately not so much a book about death, but a book about life and what really matters in the end.

Marsh is in conversation with BBC Health Editor Hugh Pym who has been reporting on politics, economics and NHS finances for more than two decades. Pym was the recipient of the 2020 British Journalism Review Charles Wheeler award in recognition of his coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic.
