Sodium 136 by Carole Bromley
Most of us, now, experience a passage of time in hospital, either as patient or carer, and the extreme, debilitating, animal emotions that go with such closeness to mortality. We tend, though, when we return to our lives, to say little about what we have seen, perhaps because is too dark to bear. Sodium 136 opens up one of these purgatorial journeys with honesty, unsparing clarity, and scalpel like precision. This book sheds light on our dark places.
