About the Author

In London during the heyday of punk, Johannes Klabbers shared the stage with legends like Siouxie and the Banshees, The Slits and XTC, before escaping to Australia to do a PhD in art and becoming an academic. Now, as an author and posthumanist therapist, he writes and talks with people about how to have a life, and what it means to die.

Reviews

`It's beautifully written, incredibly moving and lingering ... terrible, ordinary, tragic.'

-- Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick

`Wonderfully insightful ... Klabbers's interactions with patients are often inspired.'

* Weekend Australian *

`Enlightening and moving.'

-- Ramona Koval

`Anyone interested in how patients and professionals share the experience of cancer, and how relationships form in unusual and unfortunate circumstances will appreciate this book. It is for anyone who likes to think about the minutiae of another's life. It is about the ability to keep one's heart open in ill health and any reader will find a smile and a tear in the encounters described.'

-- A Nurse * Reviewed for Macmillan Cancer Support *

`[I Am Here] may help a professional if they were to get cancer and had not read anything else. As a ward assistant in a hospice and dealing with patients that have cancer, I found it very useful indeed.

-- A Ward Assistant * Reviewed for Macmillan Cancer Support *

`This is a lovely book with an insight into how people feel; it invites others to voice their feelings. It is useful for all aspects of dealing with a cancer diagnosis but could also help in other long-term conditions or acute illness scenarios.'

-- A Healthcare Professional * Reviewed for Macmillan Cancer Support *
