An important addition to the literature of cancer by an award-winning scholar and memoirist. Elaborating upon her “Living with Cancer” column in the New York Times, Susan Gubar helps patients, caregivers, and the specialists who seek to serve them. In a book both enlightening and practical, she describes how the activities of reading and writing can right some of cancer’s wrongs. To stimulate the writing process, she proposes specific exercises, prompts, and models. In discussions of the diary of Fanny Burney, the stories of Leo Tolstoy and Alice Munro, numerous memoirs, novels, paintings, photographs, and blogs, Gubar shows how readers can learn from art that deepens our comprehension of what it means to live or die with the disease. From a writer whose own memoir, Memoir of a Debulked Woman: Enduring Ovarian Cancer, was described by the New York Times Book Review as “moving and instructive…and incredibly brave,” this volume opens a path to healing.

Explores how memoirs of widowhood can help us understand the reality of bereavement and the critical role of writing and reading in recovery. The death of a beloved spouse after a lifetime of companionship is a life-changing experience. To help understand the reality of bereavement, Jeffrey Berman focuses on five extraordinary American writers—Joan Didion, Sandra Gilbert, Gail Godwin, Kay Redfield Jamison, and Joyce Carol Oates—each of whom has written a memoir of spousal loss. In each chapter, Berman gives an overview of the writer’s life and art before widowhood, including her early preoccupation with death, and then discusses the writer’s memoir and her life as a widow. He discovers that writing was, for all of these authors, both a solace and a lifeline, enabling them to maintain bonds with their lost loved ones while simultaneously moving on with their lives. These memoirs of widowhood, Berman maintains, reveal not only courage and resilience in the face of loss, but also the critical role of writing and reading in bereavement and recovery. “Writing Widowhood is a stunning achievement that combines biography, literary history, and theoretical and philosophical exploration into the nature of grief as well as mental illness—all seamlessly executed. Berman elegantly and lucidly conveys a range of theories and perspectives to suit both academic and general readers. Berman never compromises complexity while remaining accessible and straightforward throughout.” — Virginia L. Blum, author of Flesh Wounds: The Culture of Cosmetic Surgery “Writing Widowhood contributes to the field of autobiography/biography, and particularly to women’s writing within that generic field, by discussing five memoirs which Berman categorizes as the ‘widow memoir.’ No other critic that I know has shaped commentaries into a newly defined genre. Berman’s book, thus, makes an important contribution to the overall field.” — Linda Wagner-Martin, author of Telling Women’s Lives: The New Biography

'A moving, compelling and vital book, that sheds much needed light on the very latest understanding of cancer.' Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies 'Sensitive and informed. Essential reading for anyone supporting a loved one through cancer.' Deborah James, writer and broadcaster When Henry Scowcroft's partner Zarah was diagnosed with stage IV bladder cancer in her mid-thirties, their world fell apart. In order to cope with the upheaval as they endured scans, aggressive chemotherapy and hospital stays, Henry began writing down and sharing their experiences with friends and family. His day job as a writer for the charity Cancer Research UK helped him to explain everything he was learning from the coalface of cancer treatment – including Zarah's diagnosis, and their rollercoaster journey through the health system. After Zarah's untimely death Henry found some closure and comfort by trying to learn more about her cancer from scientific analysis of the test results and biopsies taken during her treatment, and enlisted a team of doctors and researchers to help him. Could he have done more? How did Zarah's tumour develop? Could there be a legacy from her death that would help others diagnosed with cancer? This heart-wrenching memoir of love and loss is interspersed with Henry's mission to understand the cancer that took his partner too soon.

Because it is filled with the most up-to-date scientific information available on the planet when it comes to cancer. Why? Because ignorance is not bliss. Historically, ignorance has killed millions.Why do I want you to read this book? Because you or someone you love who has cancer is going to make a life and death decision(s) regarding the type of therapy they take and without this knowledge it will be impossible to make a completely informed decision. Why do I want you to read this book?Because I sincerely want to help you. I wrote this book just for you." Garry EstradaPraise for "The Answers to Cancer""Cancer is no longer a death sentence. Unprecedented progress in medical research brought the cure for not only early stage, but also for terminal cancer. Surprisingly, this truth remains hidden from the public. Cancer became a separate industry in which competitors are fought and destroyed and a possible cure is covered up by a campaign of 'fake news.' "The Answers to Cancer" provides up-to-date scientific information for the general public and removes the shroud of ignorance covering important discoveries. This is a well written and very important book which could save the lives of many cancer patients. It gives me great pleasure to recommend it."Stanislaw R.

Writing the Self in Illness: Reading the Experiential Through the Medical Memoir is MUP’s refreshing venture into the developing fields of Medical and Health Humanities with an aim to consider the necessity of the narrative knowledge as complementary to the contemporary notions of well-being, illness, and healthcare. Is individual happiness contingent on health and well-being? How does one find happiness in the throes of illness? In the present-day scenario, wherein medical practice is largely dominated by evidence-based understanding, diagnostic language, and problem-solving methods, the discipline of Medical Humanities emerges with a reciprocal dialogue between Humanities, Social Sciences, Health, and Medicine. The study of varied experiential narratives – literary works and unmediated accounts of patients and healthcare professionals, is foregrounded in Medical Humanities to amplify knowledge and understanding about the complexity of encounters with illness and their transformational quality in a nuanced manner. Both thought-provoking and informative, this publication brings about the anecdotal form of personal narratives in the light of medical discourses along with the specific cultural context of the narrative. The present publication seeks to be an important reading for students and academics in the field of medical humanities, health professionals or medical practitioners, as well as scholars aspiring to venture into this flourishing field.

It includes ideas for writing individually and for directing groups, and explores journal writing, poetry, fiction, autobiography and writing out trauma, with established writers and those who have taken up writing for private enjoyment.

'In this highly readable book about a personal way of dealing with potentially life-threatening illness, we follow author, broadcaster and acclaimed poet Myra Schneider through her journey from diagnosis to recovery from breast cancer. One of the book's special gifts is to make us feel we are engaged in an absorbing conversation with a friend, a friend who is full of courage, sensitivity and hope, but manages at the same time to be completely honest about the terror, anger and times of darkness that such a diagnosis brings.' - Caduceus 'Although, as its title suggests, this book concentrates on writing for cancer sufferers, its advice is equally valid for people suffering from other problems, whether physical, emotional or practical. It shows the empowering effect of writing; how it can help to make sense when the world chaotic; how it can keep you focused when your life is falling apart. This is an inspiring read, made so by the author's frankness, warmth and honesty, which breathe through the pages.' - Writing Magazine 'Reading someone else's journal is so engaging; When that person is a poet and has experienced a life threatening illness, the reading becomes inspiring. Myra Schneider is not only a poet and author but also a teacher. Her guide lines for therapeutic writing are clear and had me reaching for a pen. It would be a very valuable book for most clients who have been, or are going through, illness or any difficult experience, to try the visualisations and writing ideas. These, and the whole book, would be extremely useful for therapists working in any setting. Buy it!' - HCPJ 'Myra, an established poet and author of a handbook on writing for personal development, clearly found her writing enormously supportive throughout the cancer experience. She clearly and simply offers exercises and routes to self-expression and exploration.' - The British Journal of General Practice 'In this moving account [Myra Schneider] tackles with endearing honesty her personal experience of breast cancer. Myra takes us from diagnosis through the long painful route to recovery by developing the journal she decided to keep through her experiences. By sharing her journal with us, Myra has provided a window onto an experience which many people, finding themselves in a similar situation, will take comfort and inspiration from.' - Lapidus Magazine 'While this book provides an intimate portrayal of the author's experience of breast cancer, the writing is often humorous and ultimately uplifting. It will be of interest to people with breast cancer and to those supporting them, and to health professionals for the psychological insights offered.' - Breast Cancer Care News Diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2000, poet and author Myra Schneider turned to her writing to help her come to terms with the experience. In this thoughtful and readable book, she illustrates how writing helped her through diagnosis, treatment and recovery as well as the change in self-image following her mastectomy. In her frank expression of intense fear, anger and doubt, Myra Schneider includes notes and finished poems written during her period of recovery. She also offers practical support in the form of therapeutic writing suggestions for cancer sufferers, whether they are experienced authors or have never written before. Bringing together an unsparing but ultimately uplifting first-hand account of life with cancer and advice about writing as therapy, this engaging and positive book shows the benefits of expressing the self through writing. It will provide inspiration and support to anyone affected by cancer and useful insight for professionals involved in the care of cancer patients.
