Pain regularly accompanies illness, as David Biro knows only too well. Faced with a bone marrow transplant, the young doctor was determined to study his pain but found himself unable to articulate its depths, even to his doctors and wife. He has now discovered a way to break through the silent wall of suffering-physical and psychological-and wants to share it with others. In his new book, the critically acclaimed author expertly weaves together compelling stories and artwork from patients along with insights from great thinkers, writers and artists. In the tradition of Susan Sontag's Illness as Metaphor, Biro's groundbreaking book will transform the reader's understanding of and ability to communicate pain. Language can alleviate the loneliness of pain and improve the chances that other people-family, friends and doctors-empathise and respond most effectively.
