Description "Love Lies Bleeding by acclaimed writer, Don DeLillo, focusses on the last years of a free spirited artist before he is left invalid by a major stroke. His wife, his estranged son and ex-wife struggle over the prospect of leaving him in a vegetative state for, perhaps, years. Tackling the ethics of their decision with masterful sensitivity, DeLillo shows us what it truly means to be alive."
