If you were told you were going to die tomorrow, what would you regret?
Ten years ago, without time to think or prepare, Georgina Scull ruptured internally. The doctors told her she could have died and, as Georgina recovered, she began to consider the life she had led and what she would have left behind.
Paralysed by a fear of wasting what seemed like precious time but also fully ready to learn how to spend her second chance, Georgina set out to meet others who had faced their own mortality or had the end in sight.
The people she met taught her what it feels like to know you're running out of time, what tends to stays with you, what you should let go of, what everyone wishes they'd done differently and what it means to have a life well-lived.
Regrets of the Dying is a powerful and hopeful meditation on life and what really matters in the end.
Georgina Scull is an award-nominated writer and broadcaster who has created numerous programmes for BBC Radio 4, with more in the works. This is her first book.
