Illness – The Art of Living

Illness is no one’s favourite topic but it happens.  How do the physical, social and emotional worlds of a person change when they become ill?  If you suffer from a chronic condition or know someone who does, this lovely little book by Havi Carel, philosophy  teacher in England, brings the subject home in a way I’ve never seen before, combining the psychological architecture of living physically unwell while falling out of society’s normal expectation of being “okay”.  It’s  out of print but available used on Amazon and a darling read.
