Prints in 3-5 business days
Scott Norris is a long-term brain cancer survivor. In this book he allows the reader a rare glimpse into the body, mind, emotions, and spirit of a brain tumor survivor as he journeys through... More > diagnosis, treatment, recovery, survivorship, and beyond. His experience is told in a raw poetic form because, as he says, “There is no grammar or punctuation surrounding memories of brain surgery, radiation, or Gamma Knife radiosurgery; trying to think again with a new brain; laying in an MRI tube scared out of my mind; experiencing seizures; or trying to learn to fit into a whole new life. There is no grammar that can make the experience seem more elaborate or eloquent, or for that matter any more real. There is just experience. No fluff. No fancy grammar. No big words. No proper punctuation. Just experience. And the impressions left behind.”< Less
