First Hand Experience,
This review is from: The Republic of Ted (Paperback)
This book was only brought to my attention some time after the death of Eddie's father. I am the Macmillan Nurse (Angel of Death) described in Beyond Language. This book is a truly memorable one. The writings about his father's stay in hospital have given me (and many of the students I talk to about cancer and its effects on the patient and the families) wonderful insight from the the people who matter the most.....the patient and their family. I can't recommend this book hightly enough. Also the Shopping Forecast in this book is a truly funny and wonderful piece of written work. I have memorised it.
