Acclaimed teacher and writer Natalie Goldberg developed cancer in her mid-sixties and her partner did too a few months later. This is Natalie’s memoir about their approach to treatment, how to negotiate relationships under pressure and how her Zen practice helped her get through. Natalie wrote the classic Writing Down the Bones, and her style is luminous and conversational. This is not about the details of cancer treatment but about confronting mortality and trying to live more fully in the moment. Indeed she takes a conventional approach to treatment, but her spirit is brave and anything but conventional.
