2015 Finalist

Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction

for Cease: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Desire

Jury Citation

“With unwavering honesty, Lynette Loeppky navigates labyrinths of hospital wards and the human heart – while asking hard questions about what we owe each other, what we owe ourselves. By turns poignant and poetic, brutal and reflective, Cease is a compelling character study and an unflinching look at the end of love. A remarkable debut by an assured and talented author, Cease will haunt readers long after they’ve turned the last page.” – 2015 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction Jury (Stevie Cameron, Will Ferguson, and JJ Lee)
