Visit the health section in the bookshop and you will find books by doctors but few of the personal narratives so well represented in other illnesses. The twin threats of incontinence and erectile dysfunction cause many men to withdraw into embarrassment behind a veil of silence.

Sons do not know the outcomes of the treatments their fathers have undergone. Friends are reluctant to speak to friends.Dale Rominger has written candidly and with self-deprecating humour about every aspect of his experience, from his diagnosis in 2011 to his radical prostatectomy in 2012 and its aftermath. He describes both the physical and emotional journeys with reflections along the way based on his efforts to make meaning of what he was experiencing.

While quick to emphasize that he is not a medical expert and that no two men’s experiences will be identical, he offers openness as a gift to other cancer patients and their families and friends. The writing is scrupulously unsentimental while acknowledging deep vulnerability, disturbing questions, anger, uncertainty and fear.
