At the age of 37 Seth Greenland finds himself in everyone’s nightmare – a routine doctor visit, some swollen glands, and finally a diagnosis of an aggressive form of lymphatic cancer. A former Hollywood screenwriter turned critically-acclaimed novelist, Seth recounts his encounters with chemotherapy, meditation, religion, and hilariously alternative treatments with warmth, humor, and honesty. There are no pat answers or inspirational revelations here, just one man confronting his worst fears – and triumphing.
Seth Greenland is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and author of five novels, including Shining City (a Washington Post Best Book of the Year) and The Hazards of Good Fortune (nominated for the 2019 Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger). Born in New York City, Greenland lives in Los Angeles with his wife.
