A Perfect Offering illuminates the dark recesses of trauma—the sudden loss of a child, surviving sexual assault, the legacy of residential schools, enduring war and imprisonment, living with chronic illness—and shines with the imperfect grace and resilience of the human heart. Some of the 31 stories will shock and disorient. Others will inspire and comfort. All are illustrative and compelling. The contributors include Jennifer Finney Boylan, trans activist and a regular contributor to The New York Times; Captain Trevor Greene, who was attacked by an axe-wielding teenager near Kandahar; author of Prisoner of Tehran, Marina Nemat; Jules Arita Koostachin, band member of Attawapiskat First Nation; and Paul Watson, awarded Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography. For others, this will be their first publication. "This emotionally honest book is simultaneously brutal, beautiful and deeply inspiring." —Jennifer Meeropol, granddaughter of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg "This book will break your heart right open." —Mike Downie, Co-Founder of The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund "These shared stories resonate with deep feeling, wisdom and courage." —Award-wining novelist Camilla Gibb

2016 Governor General's Literary Award Finalist 2017 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize Winner 2017 Joe Shuster Award Nominee Teva Harrison was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer at the age of 37. In this brilliant and inspiring graphic memoir, she documents through comic illustration and short personal essays what it means to live with the disease. She confronts with heartbreaking honesty the crises of identity that cancer brings: a lifelong vegetarian, Teva agrees to use experimental drugs that have been tested on animals. She struggles to reconcile her long-term goals with an uncertain future, balancing the innate sadness of cancer with everyday acts of hope and wonder. She also examines those quiet moments of helplessness and loving with her husband, her family, and her friends, while they all adjust to the new normal. Ultimately, In-Between Days is redemptive and uplifting, reminding each one of us of how beautiful life is, and what a gift.

The book is about the physical and emotional stress that a person with ALS undergoes. The medium is primarily in poetry, although short essays are included. And it is in the first person, by an MD. The poems express my trials and tribulations with my muscles and devices. The book is for those afflicted with ALS, their primary caregivers, and families. It has humor, pathos, and information. Also, it has excerpts from three previous books I have written.
