NotesA woman who is dying from an undiagnosed disease is losing the use of her body and is in great pain. Though the doctors cannot diagnose what is wrong with her and even suggest it is hysteria she has a condition related to the nervous system and possibly related to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She decides to find a new woman for her husband before she dies. The woman they choose is a visually impaired novelist who the husband has met at a literary luncheon. A serious film told with much humuor. From the memoir by Denis Longden
