New Perspectives From Cancer Patients – NYTimes.com

Two new books on the cancer experience: Malignant: Medical Ethicists Confront Cancer, edited by Rebecca Dresser, which has a more analytical approach, and Memoir of a Debulked Woman from the feminist critic, Susan Gubar, with more raw emotional power. The latter is more recommended in the review.

Not sure I have the interest now to plunge into these books but they both sound interesting – I am personally drawn more to the musings of the ethicists, although there does appear to be a fair amount of that in Gubar’s book.
