My first article on The Huffington Post!

Happy to see my book recommended by the book reviewers over at @OTSBooks! And wow, such great company; Steve Martin, Tracie McMillan, Siddhartha Mukherjee and more!

"In BEAUTIFUL AFFLICTION, a gorgeously rendered, poetic memoir/medical mystery, we meet Lene Fogelberg, a wife and mother living a fairy tale existence, except for the fact that she knows she is dying and her doctors don’t believe her."

There has always been a need to find words for things that hide outside the boundaries of language, in the land where all art forms reside, and where artists and poets wander wide-eyed, collecting what they can, to pour into the art they feel compelled to share.

Wonderful to see Beautiful Affliction featured on Le Mot Juste by Jonathan Goldberg, along with an article I wrote, beautifully translated into French by the amazing poet/actress Hélène Cardona (Chocolat, Jurassic World).
