An extraordinary memoir that explores the further reaches of today's cancer science - alongside a deeply tender story of loss, grief and love.

Why read it?

1 author picked Cross Everything as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I worked alongside Henry at Cancer Research UK for many years and was devastated by the news that his partner Zarah had developed bladder cancer. Part memoir, part scientific odyssey, Cross Everything captures the story behind her treatment and why it ultimately failed to save her life, and what lessons can be learned to help others in the future.
