An elegant synthesis of the psychology of life-threatening illness. The book's evocative power derives from the interweaving of clinical conceptualization with the words of patients and family members. Rather than focusing on death, the author explores living with a life-threatening illness. A wonderfully perceptive, gently prodding insistently open presentation of this topic.
