Anatole Broyard

Anatole Broyard, a famous writer in New York Times died of a urological cancer, and he wrote beautifully about his trials in a book, “Intoxicated by My Illness.”5 About his urologist, he says, “My doctor, he knows all there is to know about the prostate, but I cannot sit down and have a talk with him about it, which I find a very great deprivation. What a curious organ? What could God have been thinking about when he designed the prostate in this way? I would like to have a meditation with my physician, a rumination, a lucubration, a bombination about the prostate, but I can’t do it. I’m forced to stop people on the street and talk to them about it.”
