Rewriting illness, by Elizabeth Benedict

Staff Pick

This is a deeply moving and, given the subject, surprisingly entertaining memoir about Liz Benedict’s experience with cancer, which began after she suddenly discovered a lump in her armpit late one night in 2017. Benedict brings a veteran author’s crisp style and sense of detail and description to recounting going through something she—and many of the rest of us—have feared. She also tells her story with a good deal of humor and self-awareness and succeeds in making her very personal account resonate with universal meaning.
