Expressions of Interest - New Book

Couples & 'Going Together'

For many years, Exit has been aware of a growing trend among long-term couples who want to go together. Ever since the Australian couple, Sid and Marjorie Croft sent Philip Nitschke a letter in 2001, explaining why they had made such a decision, Exit has recognized this topic as an important social phenomenon.

A new book is now being written by Amsterdam-based writer and journalist, Mark Smith.

Mark has written extensively on end of life issues, most recently for The Economist 1843 Magazine. A graduate of Oxford University and BPP University Law School, London-born Mark Smith has written for The Times, the Observer Magazine, the Guardian, The Gentlewoman and The Daily Telegraph.

Please contact Mark if you are a couple (of any kind) and you are interested to find out more about this important project.

Introducing Damian Flowers

In May 2008, Philip Nitschke received an urgent email requesting a private visit with 30-year old Melbourne writer, Angelique Flowers. Angelique had been diagnosed with stage IV bowel cancer and, as she said, 'there is no stage V.

The email was written by her brother Damian.

Angelique died tragically a few months later. Her story was told in the documentary '35 Letters' which won the Sydney Film Festival 'best documentary' in 2014 (view trailer).

For many years, Damian Flowers has worked behind the scenes with Exit from his adopted home of London. With his recent return to Australia, he has taken up a front-of-house position at the Exit office at Ross House in Melbourne.

Damian divides his time between working for Exit International and Pegasos Swiss Association.

More about Damian is posted on the Exit Website.
