[Book Review] SO MUCH FOR THAT by Lionel Shriver
Kay reviews SO MUCH FOR THAT by Lionel Shriver (Harper, 2010)
Note: This book was a 2010 National Book Award Finalist
Reading this book is not a walk in the park! While exploring the dark side of American medicine and the side effects of fighting grave illnesses, this talented author gives his readers some answers about how to live and perhaps even how to die. When his wife is diagnosed with a virulent form of cancer, Shep Knacker has to put off his dream of retreat to a tropical island. In spite of its themes of illness and death, the reader will not be able to stop reading!
