Silent Sister: The Mastectomy Poems

by Beth Everest

More than a narrative of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, silent sister: the mastectomy poems bears witness to social and psychological impacts, for better or worse, of the altered body and mind. You enter the cave, and in it are fragments of truth, recollection, dream, hallucination, and birds. You laugh. You cry. You in•spire. And you breathe.
