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.
