A video and audio recording of the celebration of Mike’s life, which took place in London on 16 May 2015, can be viewed here:

Mike Marqusee, my partner and our brother, died peacefully on 13 January 2015, aged 61.

He was an inspiration to all of us, and to those who met him, or knew him through his writing. He had been ill with multiple myeloma, a bone marrow cancer, since 2007. He received extraordinary care from the NHS, and, latterly, from St Joseph’s Hospice. Contributions can be made in Mike’s memory to Medical Aid for Palestinians, a cause close to Mike’s heart, and/or to St Joseph’s Hospice.

Liz Davies, Jeff Marqusee, Joanne Marqusee, Susan Marqusee and Ellen Marqusee.
