It’s Good to Be Here Stories We Tell About CancerSeptember 25, 2018 By Collegeville Instititute Staff David Giuliano Victoria, British Columbia, Friesen Press, 2018 Visit this title on the publisher's website It’s Good to be Here: Stories we tell about cancer is a courageous and deeply personal book about the author’s 25 year journey with cancer. It is part memoir, part spiritual meditation in which Giuliano challenges the ubiquitous and one dimensional “battle with cancer” narrative, with alternative narratives about temples, treasure, light, pilgrimage, wolves and love. It is a fiercely honest, at times funny, book about the metaphysics of medicine and the power of story to heal. Like this post?
