JOHN GRISHAM'S NEW BOOK
When I find out that the John Grisham novel factory has produced another new, lawyerly, cleverly written book, I download it to my Kindle Reader. John Grisham is an unending fountain of novelistic entertainment. I never tire of his inventions, his style, but most, his exuberance.
So, this past week, I was not surprised to learn that he has published a book titled "The Tumor: A Non-Legal Thriller." It was offered at no charge, through Amazon. It took me less than minute to download it to my Kindle.
John Grisham states flat out in the forward of "The Tumor: A Non-Legal Thriller "This is the most important book I have written."
"The Tumor" is not about clever characterization, small town lawyers, bad judges, good judges, murder, mayhem, intrigue, legal briefs or courtroom tactics. Grisham's book is a documentary about an insidious blow that suddenly strikes people in real life, without favor to age, hygiene or habits. This is a real life monster, that just comes from nowhere, to cause horrible pain and suffering.
In the forward to the book Grisham explains—in a matter of fact way, that he has made a lot of money from his books. He investigated several avenues for philanthropy and soon was delving into a science seeking a cure for a particular kind of brain tumor. It's medical name is Giloblastoma Multiforme (GBM), or just "brain geoblastoma," and let me warn you, if you visit the website below, you will be informed about the deadliest, malignant, Primary Brain Tumor there is, the terrible rapidity of its progress and its almost absolute tenacity.
Reading about GBM evoked memories of alien beings in science fiction films capable of entering your body and growing inexorably in your brain.
In his book, "The Tumor: A Non-Legal Thriller," Grisham does a spellbinding job with two case studies.
I hasten to say that I understand that many brain tumors are treatable, and there is one treatment on the horizon that promises a solution, not only to GBM, but a host or ailments. It is called "Focused Ultrasound." It is revolutionary, ground-breaking technology, about which each of us needs to be aware.
