This unique memoir is about experiencing cancer, but it is also about so much more. Michael Murphy is an admired broadcaster, writer and psychoanalyst, and this is a pathbreaking book which has a very special relevance for all whose lives have been touched by cancer, but which also appeals to anyone who loves to read a moving story exceptionally well told.
As Mary Robinson writes in her Foreword: His book is unflinchingly honest, and he breaks down the taboo around men speaking the unspeakable...
What I have realised is that in writing about all aspects of the cancer theme - traumatic assault, mortality, endurance - Michael has created a personal myth to live by. His memoir graphically treats of themes which take enormous risks of courage to put into words, but through the exceptional quality of his writing, they have become a pillar of light which has enabled him to continue on in the warmth of its lustre, despite his loss and the limits that have now been reached.
