"A searing memoir.... I didn't know Julie, but in these pages I grew to love her." (Lucy Kalanithi) 

あらすじ・解説

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Unwinding of the Miracle by Julie Yip-Williams.

Born blind in Vietnam, Julie Yip-Williams narrowly escaped euthanasia at the hands of her grandmother, only to have to flee the political upheaval of the late 1970s with her family. Loaded into a rickety boat with 300 other refugees, Julie made it to Hong Kong and, ultimately, America, where a surgeon gave her partial sight. Against all odds, she became a Harvard-educated lawyer, with a husband, a family, a life. Then, at the age of 37, with two little girls still at home, Julie was diagnosed with terminal metastatic colon cancer, and a different journey began.

Growing out of a blog Julie kept for the last four years of her life, The Unwinding of the Miracle is the story of a vigorous life told through the prism of imminent death, of a life lived vividly and cut too short. With glorious humour, bracing honesty and the cleansing power of well-deployed anger, her story is inspiring and instructive, delightful and shattering. More than just a tale about cancer, it's about truth and honesty, fear and pain, our dreams, our jealousies. And it's about how to say good-bye to your children and a life you love.

Starting as a need to understand the disease, it has evolved into a powerful story about living - even as Julie put her affairs in order and prepared to die.

A must read!

An excellent book, a must read/hear. Julie depicts her struggle with cancer but in doing so she also reveals a much deeper dimension - the beauty and struggle of life that every human being faces. Thank you Julie for sharing your journey with us, my life is so much richer thanks to you.
