"Susan MacLeod takes an unflinching look at the reality of caring for an elderly parent, demonstrating in no uncertain terms what a monumental and life-changing journey this is for both parent and child. MacLeod documents the experience from all angles - dissecting the broader culture that devalues seniors and also turning her sharp gaze inward, at her family history and at herself. This is a valuable book for anyone who's supporting their parents or who is facing their own mortality - i.e. pretty much everyone. It's a handbook for tackling hard things head on, with courage, love and a strong sense of humour." - Sarah Leavitt, creator of Agnes, Murderess
"Someone has to do something about long term care before I get there! Susan is off to a great start with her honesty, humour and experience." - Robin Duke, SCTV, Women Fully Clothed
"Part memoir, part research paper, Susan MacLeod's Dying for Attention lays out hard facts about important subjects that we'd rather not talk about - difficult familial relationships, aging, death and the failing of long-term elder care systems - all with a humorous touch. MacLeod's skill as a communications director informs her intuitive art style. Packed with gags, this book is an engaging and important read, and a necessary guidebook for anyone with aging family or loved ones. You'll be laughing as your heart breaks." - Rebecca Roher, Bird in a Cage
