Bathsheba's Breast: Women, cancer and history.

Baltimore, MD: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2002.

"Olson, who lost his left hand and forearm to cancer while writing this book, provides an absorbing and often frightening narrative history of breast cancer told through the heroic stories of women who have confronted the disease, from Theodora to Anne of Austria, Louis XIV's mother, who confronted "nun's disease" by perfecting the art of dying well, to Dr. Jerri Nielson, who was dramatically evacuated from the South Pole in 1999 after performing a biopsy on her own breast and self-administering chemotherapy."
