Coda is Simon Gray's powerful account of the year in which he struggled to come to terms with terminal lung cancer.
Darkly comic depictions of the medical team are set against joyful accounts of sunlit days with his beloved wife, Victoria.
Written with exceptional candour and a poignant reluctance to leave this world behind, Simon Gray's Coda is as life-affirming as it is heart-rending.
Sadly, Coda was published posthumously: Gray died in August 2008.
