Penultimate Press, Inc., Saint Louis, Missouri

This new anthology of 21different women’s battles with sickness and the health care system brings to light the diversity of challenges and discriminations faced by American women of all ages and from any community.  Lois Uttley, co-founder of Raising Women’s Voices, has to say about the collection of stories:

“What kind of health care are we getting for the billions of dollars we are spending in the United States?  It depends a lot on who you are, where you live, what kind of insurance you have (if any), and how determined you are to get the care you need from the health providers you encounter on any particular day.  That’s the unvarnished truth that emerges from this fine collection of often-penetrating personal essays by American women…Health policymakers debating how to reform our system should read these stories first!”

The book, edited by Colleen McKee and Amanda Stiebel, will be on Amazon.com soon, but can currently be ordered directly through the publisher, $19.95.
