The Life of Illness tells is one woman’s courageous struggle with kidney failure, illness and death, yet it is truly about life, hope, faith and the transformative power of caring for one another. Inspired by the works of philosophers, literary authors and poets, Olson turns to hermeneutical phenomenology to explore the meaning of the experience of illness, engaging in reflective conversations from various points of view: chaplain, doctor, nurse and parent. The clarity and compelling nature of Olson’s writing makes this book accessible to all whose lives have been touched by illness, as we ultimately ask, not, “How can we live with illness?” but, “What is life?”
