Stories of Healing Mind and BodyBook - 2001
Carefully selected from the best fiction and non-fiction on the subject of illness and healing, Cure presents twelve brilliant therapeutic tales--stories of those who have discovered reserves of strength as they help themselves and others on the road to wellness. Among the selections are Dr. Jerome Groopman's account of his closest friend's Job-like battles against T-cell lymphoma and leukemia--and the wisdom the two men acquire in the process; Isaac Bashevis Singer's soulful tale of an ailing man and the woman who saves both of their lives; and hard-living editor Robert McCrum's firsthand account of a disabling stroke, his wife's feelings of desperation--and ultimately their experience of a love greater than either had known before. Cure includes work by Robert Lipsyte, Dennis Covington, Bernie Siegel, Wilfred Sheed, Stanley Siegel, Norman Cousins, and others.
