    Daniel Miller is Professor of Anthropology at University College London.


    'The Comfort of People reveals, in both technicolour and shades of grey, the ordinariness, the drama, the simplicity and the complexity of networks as people live out lives in the shadow of a serious diagnosis... These stories need to be read by all those working with dying people.'
    -Dr Ros Taylor, Clinical Director, Hospice UK
