Under Our Skin: Literature of Breast Cancer

Under Our Skin

An anthology of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and photography from prize-winning writers across the U.S. and abroad exploring the multifaceted experience of breast cancer. Much more than a collection of inspirational literature by and for breast cancer sufferers, Under Our Skin seeks to educate and provoke—to get under our skin. The works in this collection lead the reader on a journey through the anger, sadness, humor, and hope of medical treatment and issues of family, identity, friendship, and community, as told from the perspectives of both the patients and survivors and their friends and families. Designed for both private reading and classroom use in a variety of disciplines, Under Our Skin encourages reflection and discussion by complicating and challenging what we think we know about breast cancer, even as it inspires us to find strength and purpose in unexpected places.
