After her husband starved himself to death over the course of nine days rather than continue living with Parkinson’s disease, NPR’s Diane Rehm found herself plagued with questions and fears. She channeled her struggles into “On My Own,” an evocative and incisive memoir. Jeffrey Brown sits down with Rehm to discuss what the book means for her and her ongoing advocacy for assisted suicide.
