In the summer of 1990 Cathy Rentzenbrink's brother Matty was knocked down and left in a permanent vegetative state, from which he was never to recover. Powerful, intimate and intensely moving, The Last Act of Love is a person journey with universal resonance - a story of unconditional love, of grief, survival and the strength of the ties that bind.

Cathy Rentzenbrink was born in Cornwall, grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in London, where she works as a writer and journalist. She is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling memoir The Last Act of Love, which was shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize.
