The cats give Paul no peace. So Paul calls on the aid of his cousin, Chloe, who suggests he join her in the French village not far from Poitiers where she has taken a six-month lease on a house—so he can get the book finished in peace. He needs no second bidding and it is not long before he escapes to France.
Once there, however, Paul finds his fortunes tangled up with the fate of one eating establishment in the village: the infamous Second Worst Restaurant in France. John Lee is a lonely and increasingly misanthropic Chinese migrant who has lived in Auckland for thirty years, running a second-hand junk shop while maintaining a relationship of disdain with his disabled wife.

So this month three books about illness.
Kalnithi was in the last stage of training to be a neurosurgeon, when he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Acknowledged by his peers as one of the youngest and brightest in his field, with a future bright with possibility, he and his wife Lucy planning a child, the news was devastating. The book follows his journey to the end. Of course this is a sad book, but as you travel with Paul, you find a man who, while facing the reality of his illness, decides to do all he can to live a meaningful life, and to use what ever resources he has to keep working, assisting fellow doctors and students, and providing care and compassion to his patients—a relationship he becomes intimately aware of when the tables turn and he becomes the patient.
Reading the book, you can see how much he loved words. He was widely read with a particular love for poetry. However, when he heard the call to medicine his career trajectory changed radically from the humanities to science. Genova writes her books as fiction, but they are all based on real events that are thoroughly researched. When I first read the title I assumed it would be about someone abandoned to die a sad, lonely death. But no Sarah Nickerson, mother of three, married to Bob, is a high-flyer with a high-powered job, working sometimes eighty hours a week—always on call.
Her husband Bob is not far behind. Then one day Sarah, distracted by her mobile drivers take note , crashes into a tree. She wakes in hospital to find staples holding her scalp together and the news that the right side of her brain has suffered a severe injury, and she has lost all feeling on the left side of her body. To Sarah, her left side no longer exists.
Having lived most of her life on the run, she finds it difficult to accept her new circumstances— for example, being a can-do person, decides she can go to the bathroom without assistance, gets out of bed, and falls in a heap. A new life gradually emerges for Sarah, Rob and her children. A great read. Alison, married to Ian, mother of five children, is a happy, busy woman living in Melbourne, feeling fit and well. The family take the ferry to Tasmania for a holiday, involving bush walking at Cradle Mountain.
When they are back at the lodge, Ian and Alison decide to go to hospital for an x-ray. The doctor in emergency is reluctant to do the x-ray, as it is after hours, and he thinks it is just sprained. However, Alison insists, and the following day the radiologist calls and tells her that there is something of concern on the x-ray, and suggests she see a Orthopaedic surgeon on her return to Melbourne.
After tests and a biopsy, Alison is told that she has a rare and incurable cancer. Alison is of course shattered by the diagnosis, but is also immediately worried about her family. What comes next is something quite wonderful. Alison has always been very active in her community and on hearing of her illness her friends all rally round and form a daily roster to make the evening meal for Alison and the family.
Not only does this make sure Alison has the rest she needs, but it means the family comes together every day for dinner. Because of this upheaval in her life, Alison, who is Jewish but non-practicing, decides to become an observant Jew. Ian, who is a nominal Anglican decides to convert, and the celebration of Shabbat dinner on Fridays becomes another thing the family shares with friends.
This is a lovely book full of hope and joy—and the addition of a couple of the recipes made with such love from traditional Jewish recipes, makes it even more appealing. Janice Wilder.
