A 2012 New York Times Book Review Notable Book
"Staggering, searing…Ms. Gubar deserves the highest admiration for her bravery and honesty." ―New York Times
Ovarian cancer remains an incurable disease for most of those diagnosed, even those lucky enough to find caring and skilled physicians. Memoir of a Debulked Woman is both a polemic against the ineffectual and injurious medical responses to which thousands of women are subjected and a meditation on the gifts of companionship, art, and literature that sustain people in need. 2 illustrations
About: A woman living with ovarian cancer describes going through debulking surgery, during which parts or whole organs in the lower abdomen are removed, and searches for understanding and offers hope and support to other people in need.
