Advance praise for The Body Broken

“We are all looking for lessons in courage. And family. And faith that some of our sweetest hours will come on the darkest days. All are here in Lynne Greenberg’s razor-sharp memoir of life and pain and the miracle of a family bound together by love.”
–Diane Sawyer, ABC News

“As a fellow survivor of a body broken, I find Greenberg’s memoir to be unsparing, accurate, and moving, especially in depicting her struggle to come to terms with residual chronic pain.”
–Maxine Kumin, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Inside the Halo and Beyond: The Anatomy of a Recovery

“This book describes with shattering clarity the experience of relentless, horrifying pain. Drawing on a vast range of poetic sources, it gives voice both to the author’s loss of bodily and psychic coherence and to the process of redemption that followed, and it is written with lyricism, poignance, and wit. A rare testimony to the enmeshment of our fragility and our strength, it will provide crucial solace to those who are in pain, and insight to those who love them.”
–Andrew Solomon, National Book Award-winning author of The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

“Engaging . . . a revealing, personal journey through physical trauma.”
–Publishers Weekly
