Alastair Neil’s ‘Pride & Dignity’ could just be the most tragic, contentious family drama to have been released in a decade. It’s two stories in one, following the business dealings of a doting father-and-son team who put integrity before profit, only to have their bonds tested to the limit when terminal illness strikes and assisted suicide strains everyone’s beliefs and morals. It’s a novel that looks at the wider assisted suicide movement, particularly from a standpoint of ethics and ideology. One critic wrote, “What a rollercoaster of emotions and very well written. Made me think what would I do in the same circumstances.”.

What would happen if your father was a man of class and integrity who, after falling ill and facing his own death, decided to travel to Switzerland for the ultimate self-deliverance? Could you provide unreserved support? Would it go against the morals you hold so near and dear? For the son in Alastair Neil’s new book, it’s a decision he must make today.
