Excerpt

Misery and suffering have always lingered in humankind’s
deepening shadows, a sordid background on the stage of human drama,
shifting in intensity across Homo sapiens time. Disease is never quite out
of sight for anyone, always edging the fringe of experience. Few
individuals even in the modern era travel through their lives without at
least once stumbling into injury or contracting an infectious illness.
Unexpectedly disease may leak joy from one’s existence, alter the
course of one’s intimate relationships. This is the stuff of real life. It also
ought to form a portion of the foundation of characterization as well as
offer plot (mis)direction.
Throughout history, illness, like its fellow tormentor, war, has
defined humankind’s folly. The hopeful protégé of this painful history, our
species remains a tortured learner. Limping through varied and
uncertain existences, we seem confused by the thorn in our heel.
