Description
Ill people are more than victims of diseases or patients of medicine; they are wounded storytellers, Arthur Frank argues. People tell stories to make sense of their suffering; when they turn their disease into stories, they find healing. Drawing on the work of such authors as Oliver Sacks, Anatole Broyard, Norman Cousins, and Audre Lorde, Frank recounts a stirring collection of stories about illness. Identifying types of illness narratives and exploring what they tell us about suffering and moral choice, he argues that they exemplify an emerging ethic of postmodern times.
