Among the selections are Dr. Jerome Groopmans account of his closest friends Job-like battles against T-cell lymphoma and leukemia—and the wisdom the two men acquire in the process- Isaac Bashevis Singers soulful tale of an ailing man and the woman who saves both of their lives- and hard-living editor Robert McCrums firsthand account of a disabling stroke, his wifes feelings of desperation—and ultimately their experience of a love greater than either had known before. Cure includes work by Robert Lipsyte, Dennis Covington, Bernie Siegel, Wilfred Sheed, Stanley Siegel, Norman Cousins, and others.
