Rarely has so painful a subject-being sick-produced so exhilarating a book. His writing if full of wisdom and panache. He manages to turn physical affliction into literary gold. A series of moving, often hilarious meditations on chronic illness that remind us, in prose that mesmerizes, of the remakable tenacity of the human spirit.
