"Too academic to have wide appeal, but worthwhile for students of ethics, medical and otherwise."
Meticulous explication of the significance and value of narratives of illness by a Canadian (Univ. of Calgary) sociologist who, as a survivor of both a heart attack and cancer, is himself a ``wounded storyteller.'' Seriously ill people are wounded in both body and voice and ``need to become storytellers to recover the voices that illness and its treatment have taken away,'' according to Frank (At the Will of the Body: Reflections on Illness, 1991).
