These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes…Where will it stop? Even Anita Blake doesn’t know.

Wade Whitehouse is an improbable protagonist for a tragedy. A well-digger and policeman in a bleak New Hampshire town, he is a former high-school star gone to beer fat, a loner with a mean streak. It is a mark of Russell Banks' artistry and understanding that Wade comes to loom in one's mind as a blue-collar American Everyman afflicted by the dark secret of the macho tradition. Told by his articulate, equally scarred younger brother, Wade's story becomes as spellbinding and inexorable as a fuse burning its way to the dynamite.

"Affliction: Health, Disease, Poverty inaugurates a novel way of understanding the trajectories of health and disease in the context of poverty. It traces the unfolding of illness within families, local communities, neighborhood markets and in occult worlds. Privileging the experience of people living in these neighborhoods it asks how can global health be made to take this experience into account rather than escape from it?"--Provided by publisher.

"Highly recommended . . . Holmes moves seamlessly from novelists like Charles Dickens to sociologists like Henry Mayhew to autobiographers like John Kitto." ---Choice "An absolutely stunning book that will make a significant contribution to both Victorian literary studies and disability studies." ---Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Emory University "Establishes that Victorian melodrama informs many of our contemporary notions of disability . . . We have inherited from the Victorians not pandemic disability, but rather the complex of sympathy and fear." ---Victorian Studies Tiny Tim, Clym Yeobright, Long John Silver---what underlies nineteenth-century British literature's fixation with disability? Melodramatic representations of disability pervaded not only novels, but also doctors' treatises on blindness, educators' arguments for "special" education, and even the writing of disabled people themselves. Drawing on extensive primary research, Martha Stoddard Holmes introduces readers to popular literary and dramatic works that explored culturally risky questions like "can disabled men work?" and "should disabled women have babies?" and makes connections between literary plots and medical, social, and educational debates of the day. Martha Stoddard Holmes is Associate Professor of Literature and Writing Studies at California State University, San Marcos.

Patient in Affliction is a unique, informative tool for family caregivers. As you read the pages, you'll be enlightened, encouraged, entertained and equipped.

By the time you read the last sentence, you will realize that whatever you go through, whatever emotions you experience, you are not the first or only person to feel what you are feeling. You are absolutely not alone. Somebody understands. Patient in Affliction is also encouragement for the encourager. Perhaps you are a friend of someone serving as family caregiver. This book raises your understanding about what a family caregiver goes through, and why your support is essential.

Walk with me, please. Just a step. Have you ever stated the following: “Why was I born?” “No one loves me!” and “Why me?” or “Enough is enough!” A moment of your time may release a washing so far hiding, even deeper from within only the angels could hear, vibrating an awakening so vital, so reachable, so exhaleable. Where, at times, tears fall, during sunny rainbows, and that confusing question—Why?—rears a depression. This road’s not yours because you have a purpose. You’re not on this island solo! You are somebody! You will succeed. And because you have and know your purpose, knowing that you have choices and voices grown, yet not as yet sown, to continue our healing. Many miles. Not even a sweat.
