Learning to Live Again, My Triumph Over Cancer

Library Journal review

Solkoff, Joel. Learning To Live Again: My Triumph over Cancer.

Holt. Jun. 1983. c.220p.  LC 82-18743. ISBN 0- 03-057647-4. SI6.95. MED/PER NAR

Solkoff is diagnosed as having Hodgkin’s disease, a type of cancer. He fears the disease and the possibility of death.

He undergoes radiation treatment to eradicate the cancer, “Radiation treatment was the worst experience of my life”: he loses his appetite and his energy, and he becomes depressed. He feels humiliation, anger, and misery.

Written with honesty and feeling, Learning To Live Again is a story of remarkable courage in the face of disease.

Highly recommended for public library collections.
