[Sic]

by Joshua Cody - £7.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781408822463 | ISBN 10: 1408822466

Joshua Cody was about to receive his PhD from Columbia University when he was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. He underwent six months of chemotherapy. The treatment failed. Expectations for survival plummeted. After consulting with several oncologists, he embarked on a risky course of high-dose chemotherapy, full body radiation, and an autologous bone marrow transplant.
 
In a fevered, mesmerising voice, slaloming effortlessly between references to Ezra Pound, The Rolling Stones and Beethoven, in a memoir that is as fresh and beguiling as it is brave and revealing he charts the struggle: the fury, the tendency to self-destruction, the ruthless grasping for life, for sensation.
 
Literary, hallucinatory and at times uncomfortable reading, [sic] is ultimately a celebration of art, language music and life.
