About This Item
Acclaimed poet, Gabrielle Glancy, has emerged at last, with a strikingly original memoir. Part medical mystery, part meditation, part short but thrilling ghost story, I'm Already Disturbed Please Come In is a harrowing (and sometimes hilarious) tale of her descent into and eventual emergence from the alien and alienated worlds of illness and contemporary health care. It's also a subtly brilliant meditation on the social - or asocial - world of medicine's strange but very relevant intersection with the infectious world of social media (Facebook in particular). Brilliant, sexy, troubling, funny, the narrative alternates between Facebook images the writer obsessively collects when she is too weak to do anything else and the story of her journey through the wilds of Western medicine to get a diagnosis and ultimately find a cure.
