I am, I am, I am : seventeen brushes with death / Maggie O'Farrell.

Summary

Summary:

We are never closer to life than when we brush up against the possibility of death. O'Farrell discusses the near-death experiences that have punctuated and defined her life. From a childhood illness that left her bedridden for a year, which she was not expected to survive, through her ongoing, daily struggle to protect her daughter from a condition that leaves her unimaginably vulnerable to life's myriad dangers. Seventeen encounters at different ages, in different locations, capture the perils-- and illuminates the preciousness, beauty, and mysteries-- of life itself.
