Bed 12

When Alison Murdoch’s husband catches viral encephalitis and falls into a life-threatening coma, everything changes. Bed 12 is a survival guide to the world of acute medicine, and a poignant and darkly comic account of what it’s like to fight for someone’s life. Over the course of a summer, machines beep and clatter, medical staff come and go, and family and friends of varying beliefs offer well-intentioned advice. For someone unfamiliar with hospitals, death and dying, the insights of Buddhism assume a greater relevance than ever before. This book is an astute, profound and uplifting insight into how to cope with despair, heartache and the unknown.
‘The object of my concern-or rather the entire focus of my current existence-is now lying in Bed 12.’
‘Riveting.’
Dr Bob Grove, former Chief Executive, the Centre for Mental Health
