By September 20, 2018News

Hay consoledAll Things Consoled, Elizabeth Hay’s startling and beautiful memoir about the drama of her parents’ end, is a finalist for the 2018 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction.

Jury Citation:

“Elizabeth Hay’s loving, exacting memoir, All Things Consoled, details the decline of her elderly parents with unflinching tenderness. The path she and her family travel is crooked and long, filled with hospital beds and doctors’ visits, foggy minds, and shuffling confusion. But Hay’s prose elevates this ordinary rite of passage — the death of one’s parents — to something rare and poetic.”
