Patricia Holt, San Francisco Chronicle Silvies Life is a tender and beautifully written book. I stayed up all night reading it, absolutely mesmerized, in awe of Silvies parents and of Silvie herself. I couldnt put it down. Anne Lamott, Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Sons First Year A classic in its field, this short biography of a baby girl began as a series of journals kept by the babys mother during Silvies life and took seven years to write and revise, as life went on.

First published by Zenobia Press, Berkeley, in 1995, it has been optioned for film and adopted for ethics courses. Dr. Anita Catlin read the book when she was writing her dissertation, which led her to propose new protocols that now are used in Neonatal Intensive Care Units around the world.

Silvies Life has been presented at an international bioethics conference on the same program with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and was translated into Portuguese in 2006 by Gradiva, Lisbon. Supplementary PDF materials for use in classrooms and book groups include discussion guide questions and articles that situate this story within the history of neonatal care.
