The latest offering from award-winning author Steven Amsterdam, The Easy Way Out, has been called ‘movingly rendered and blackly funny’ (The Guardian) and ‘a perfect storm of a novel’ (The Sydney Morning Herald). It’s the story of Evan, a nurse and ‘suicide assistant’, who ‘hands out the last drink to those who ask for it’. Steven challenges readers with the taboo dilemma: Would you help someone end their life? Steven, a writer and palliative care nurse, discusses his work with Margot Saville.
