Granta 120: Medicine

Author(s): John Freeman (ed.)


A writer chronicles the surrender of her body to MS; a woman running a substance-abuse clinic faces challenges from clients, donors and her own past; two brothers fix up a house - but can't quite fix the aging parents who will live in it. From the chalky horse-pills of faceless pharmaceutical conglomerates to the hot toddy that was Grandmother's remedy for bruised knees, broken hearts and everything besides - here are stories about the ways we face our ailments and the ways we seek to cure ourselves.
