Miles to Go Before I Sleep
‘The feeling of mortality brings you to life like nothing else.’ This is the paradox writer Claire Gilbert grapples with in her book Miles to Go Before I Sleep: Letters on hope, death and learning to live (Hodder & Stoughton, 2021).
Gilbert is living with leukaemia and writes graphically about her physical symptoms and treatment as well as her feelings since she was diagnosed with the life-limiting disease.
The experience has given her a fresh perspective on life, facing up to the personal implications of her illness, including, for example, that she is unlikely to reach old age.
