AT THE WILL OF THE BODYBy Arthur W. Frank
- Author: Arthur W. Frank
- Edition: Advance Reader's Copy
The author, victim of two serious illnesses, tells us how illness affects us and what it can teach us about life. He explores illness from within: the feeling of being transformed from person to patient, the stigma attached to cancer, the lonely nights of pain, the discovery of wonderment at the body despite its failings. He leads us to examine our own instincts and impulses and tells us that illness must be recognized, talked about, and shared.
