The Sandra Sanchez Story

The Sandra Sanchez Story

It started out as a small blotch, and as Sandra grew older, the blotch slowly changed into what looked like a small equilateral triangle. The doctor assured the Sanchez couple that this was no big deal, not to worry about the mark.

This exceptional work explores the complexities of communication at one of the most critical stages of the life experience--during advanced, serious illness and at the end of life. Challenging the predominantly biomedical model that informs much communication between seriously ill and/or dying patients and their physicians, caregivers, and families, Sandra L. Ragan, Elaine M. Wittenberg-Lyles, Joy Goldsmith, and Sandra Sanchez-Reilly pose palliative care--medical care designed to comfort rather than to cure patients--as an antidote to the experience of most Americans at the most vulnerable juncture of their lives. With an author team comprised of three health communication scholars and one physician certified in geriatrics and palliative medicine, this volume integrates the medical literature on palliative care with that of health communication researchers who advocate a biopsychosocial approach to health care. Applying communication theories and insights to illuminate problems and to explain their complexities, the authors advocate a patient-centered approach to care that recognizes and seeks to lessen patients’ suffering and the many types of pain they may experience (physical, psychological, social, and spiritual) during life-threatening illness.

Honorable Mention for the 2017 Rondo Award The stories behind some of cinema's great movies by the people who made them. Here, in their own words, are insights, reminiscences and candid comments by the directors (and, occasionally, stars) of films as diverse as The Exorcist, Men in Black, Sleepy Hollow and Twelve Monkeys. The line-up is truly stellar. William Friedkin rubs shoulders with Barry Sonnenfeld and Will Smith. Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam recall the creation of their individual and unique projects. John Carpenter looks back at The Thing, once misunderstood but now lauded as a masterpiece. Zombie king George A. Romero retraces the corpse-strewn road that led to his return to movies with Land of the Dead. Quentin Tarantino talks passionately about the 'Grindhouse' experiment of Death Proof. And acclaimed newcomer Ben Wheatley, hailed as the savior of new British horror, reveals the background to Kill List. Just some of the filmmakers who have made a dent in the genre of horror, sci-fi and fantasy. TONY EARNSHAW has interviewed hundreds of film personalities while writing for such diverse publications as Fangoria, Cinema Reiro, Sight & Sound, Diabolique, Starburst, Film Review, Little Shoppe of Horrors and Scarlet Street. He is the author of An Actor and a Rare One -- Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes, Beating the Devil -- The Making of Night of the Demon, Made in Yorkshire (with Jim Moran), The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark (Ed.), Studies in the Horror Film: Tobe Hooper's Salem's Lot (Ed.) and Under Milk Wood Revisited: The Wales of Dylan Thomas (with Mark Davis). His debut piece of horror fiction, 'Flies', appeared in The Eleventh Black Book of Horror, published by Mortbury Press in 2015.

Can literature heal? The Poetics of Palliation argues that our answers to this question have origins in the Romantic period. In the past twenty years, health humanists and scholars of literature and medicine have drawn on Romantic ideas to argue that literature cures by making sufferers whole again. But this model oversimplifies how Romantic writers thought literature addressed suffering. Poetics documents how writers like William Wordsworth and Mary Shelley explored palliative forms of literary medicine: therapies that stressed literature's manifold relationship to pain and its power to sustain, comfort, and challenge even when cure was not possible. The book charts how Romantic writers developed these palliative poetics in conversation with their medical milieu. British medical ethics was first codified during the Romantic period. Its major writers, John Gregory and Thomas Percival, endorsed a palliative mandate to compensate for doctors' limited curative powers. Similarly, Romantic writers sought palliative approaches when their work failed to achieve starker curative goals. The startling diversity of their results illustrates how palliation offers a more comprehensive metric for literary therapy than the curative traditions we have inherited from Romanticism.
