Praise For…


"Staying Alive is a woman's book-inspiring, gripping, compassionate, unflinching. A family story, an exquisitely drawn portrait of a mother and daughter, and the story of a woman's courageous decision to free herself from a history of breast cancer. I could not put it down."
-Carol Gilligan, author of The Birth of Pleasure

"Compelling ... What keeps this from being mere medical melodrama is the author's warm, meticulous reconstruction of her relatives' lives, including her tangled relationship with her beloved mother. A tragic but ultimately hopeful story." -Kirkus Reviews

"There are many fine stories here-about dying with dignity and with disability-and about the courage to sacrifice vanity in order to live without fear." -Publishers Weekly
