Overview Ein alvorleg sjukdom

The poems in A Serious Disease deal with a woman who is diagnosed with cervical cancer. We accompany her from the moment she receives the tough news, into meetings with doctors and gynaecologists, through radiation treatment, chemotherapy and routine check-ups, in her intimate relationships, on the long and winding road back to good health. These direct and wondering poems offer the reader insight into a momentous experience.

Reviews Ein alvorleg sjukdom

En alvorlig vakker bok 23.05.2021

«Med blodig alvor og en god dæsj humor, viser debutant Cecilie Almberg Størkson oss mennesket bak kreftsykdommen. [...] Dette er en diktsamling om kjærligheten, havet og døden – og alt det hverdagslige, meningsløse og fine imellom.»

Maria Jostad, Universitas
