    MOBI Anatole Broyard ↠ MOBI Intoxicated by My Illness PDF/EPUB ô Intoxicated by ↠ famulantenaustausch.de intoxicated ebok, illness download, Intoxicated by download, Intoxicated by My Illness EpubA beautiful sad memoir from the pen of a perfect writer I could not put this book down The title essay is permeated with a unsentimental clarity Unabashedly in love with words Broyard drops language jokes everywhere “I understood that living itself had a deadline” He enjoys the irony of being a critic with a critical illnessIn “Toward a Literature of Illness” he praises novelists who have tackled the topic—first among them Thomas Mann a favorite of mine and Malcolm Lowry—but only Oliver Sacks gets his vote in the nonfiction category Bernie Siegel Norman Cousins Susan Sontag—no one he says challenging himself to fill in the gap writes about “the imaginative life of the sick” about “how illness transfigures you”“The Patient Examines the Doctor” and “Journal Notes” should be reuired reading in medical school Broyard refutes the exclusion of a person’s style and soul from this most wondrous and terrible time W
