British author and biographer, Robert Fraser, is releasing his latest book, ‘Pascal’s Tears, or How Not to Murder One’s Wife’, an open letter to the departed, a book about the sort of moral dilemmas very many of us are now obliged to face.

London, UK, 28th August 2018: Emeritus Professor Robert Fraser is a biographer and critic, with many diverse publications to his name. His biography of the poet George Barker was a Spectator book of the year; his life of the poet David Gascoyne topped the Independent’s list of new biographies. He has also published books about Marcel Proust, the anthropologist Sir James Frazer, and the print history of Africa and India. This newest title moves away from his works of the past, and is a very close and personal subject to the author.

In the autumn of 2013 Robert Fraser delivered a talk in the Festival Hall in London about ethical decision and choice. Three days later, he was confronted by the most intractable decision of his own life. His wife’s existence lay in the balance and it was for him, in consultation with doctors and her family, to determine what action they should take. This is the story of that process of choice and its consequences, a tale of increasing relevance to more and more people in an age of improved medical care and lengthening life expectancy.

The title will be officially released on October 31st 2018, but is available now for pre-order.

About Cranthorpe Millner

Too many beautifully written books are rejected on a regular basis because the submitting author doesn’t have a strong enough author platform. The barriers for authors are getting higher and the publishing industry less discerning and more unscrupulous. It is important to Cranthorpe Millner that we can invite authors to publish with us based on the merit of the manuscript alone.
