La storia sconvolgente di una famiglia tenuta in ostaggio per dieci anni dagli errori medici e dall’ottusità del sistema sanitario italiano. « Un giorno un chirurgo mi disse: "Sono un chirurgo, io taglio, non curo le malattie". » « C’è un limite alle sofferenze che un essere vivente può sostenere? Fino a quando un cuore può sopportare gli spasmi di dolore che fanno sussultare e trattenere il fiato, facendo contrarre lo stomaco e alterando il battito, prima di scoppiare come un palloncino strizzato? Fino a che punto il cervello può sopportare la continua sofferenza prima di staccare la spina e decidere che non ce la fa più? Ci sono voluti ben nove anni, undici interventi chirurgici, sette primari (tutti grandi professori) e un numero imprecisato di medici e, alla fine di questa guerra, che io non mi sono mai sognata di dichiarare, sono rimasti sul campo una MIA gamba, il MIO occhio sinistro, parte del MIO occhio destro, la MIA mano sinistra, le dita del MIO piede destro, il MIO . . .

After John Kennedy's assassination, Robert - formerly his brother's no-­holds-­barred political warrior - was left stunned and grieving. He was haunted by his brother's murder and by the nation's failure to address its most pressing challenges - race, poverty, and the war in Vietnam. He sensed that America was wounded, and when he announced that he was running for president, much of the country was thrilled to hear his message of healing and hope. Although fearing that there were, as he told one confidant, "guns between me and the White House,­" he risked his life to ask Americans to help him reclaim "the generous impulses that are the soul of this nation.­" As Thurston Clarke recounts so effectively in The Last Campaign, Kennedy stirred huge crowds, who would often tear his clothes, and moved even the most hard-­bitten of journalists and other intimate observers. He challenged his audiences: telling college students he would end the draft deferments that left poor and minority youths . . .
