Recommended by Sophia Stephens

Sick is a testimony to the cycles of misdiagnosis, harm, disbelief, pain, survival, and transformation that affect a chronically ill woman trying to save her own life. Porochista Khakpour, who was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme disease after years of trying to find out the cause of her ailments, has written a memoir that speaks directly to sick women—the women who aren’t listened to by doctors, who have their pain dismissed as hysterics, who are discarded by loved ones for being “too much”—while capturing what it means to keep going when, in all reality, the idea of getting better sounds more like a joke than a consoling hope. She stops in town for a reading and talk with Tricia Romano.
