Abstract / Summary

We all know someone. Or maybe that someone happens to be us. This groundbreaking landmark anthology explores the subject of cancer from all different points of view: patient, survivor, caregiver, lover, parent, child, doctor, surgeon, alternative healer, psychologist, compassionate human being, body part, and from the disease itself. The collection includes new and original poetry by established and emerging voices (some of whom are health practitioners): Teva Harrison, Molly Peacock, A.F. Moritz, Pamela Mordecai, Christian Bök, Catherine Graham, Canisia Lubrin, Bardia Sinaee, Ron Charach, Adam Sol, Emily Schultz, Jónína Kirton, and Zoe Whittall, and many others. Their work offers us new ways of seeing, understanding, and representing this ordinary and extraordinary experience. Current statistics predict 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. We need more art to understand the complexity and dimensions of what this means. This is an anthology for anyone who knows someone. This is an anthology for everyone.
