Overview

Part mystery, part love story, part report from the medical front in the
United States today, Riptides relates the fast-onset brain cancer that ripped
through a strong, healthy man and led to his death four months later at the
age of fifty-six. The book is a searing chronology of the effects of devastating
illness, of being caught in the maw of hospitals, of unthinkable decisionmaking
and small, unexpected solaces. Tightly written, fact-based, it is never
maudlin, and it offers an element of hope without sentimentality.
