In the late 1980s, Ed McBain got a sore throat; not unusual except his then lasted on-and-off for the next ten years...Doctor after doctor attempted to treat his condition, but it got neither better nor worse and eventually became a source of some amusement to the author. However a few years ago - during another routine check-up - the news came back that this time it was cancer. And not only that, but the only course of action would be to remove Ed's larynx in its entirety - amongst other things robbing him of his voice. This is the story of Ed's experiences during those dark days and his recovery afterwards. It's a tale told with sadness, regret and stunning good humour. And in the end it is a story of eventual success and happiness. But the journey to get there is littered with triumph and tragedy...
