Diary Entry

To Tell. Not to Tell

It’s hard to tell people that you have cancer. No one knows what to say and those who care feel sad or scared. But not to tell makes it seems as if cancer is a terrible secret and that is the opposite of what is needed in a world in which cancer will touch so many lives.

Nancy K. Miller. Diary

Welcome. Some musings on my current preoccupations with the worlds of illness and the worlds of books: the vicissitudes of living with cancer and the need, for now, to launch (a k a promote) my new memoir, My Brilliant Friends: Our Lives in Feminism. Naturally, I inhabit both spaces, which makes for a strangely bifurcated, though far from boring, existence. Click to view both Feminist Friendship Archive and My Multifocal Life projects.
