    We talk with ELEANOR CLIFT a contributing editor to Newsweek about her new book Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death & Politics. At the same time that Terry Schiavo was dying in her Florida hospice, Clift’s husband, Tom Brazaitis, was dying of cancer at home; the two passed away within a day of each other. Two Weeks of Life alternates between these two stories to provide a commentary on how we deal dying in modern America.
