The Plague and I Paperback / softback
"Getting tuberculosis in the middle of your life is like starting downtown to do a lot of urgent errands and being hit by a bus.
When you regain consciousness you remember nothing about the urgent errands.
You can't even remember where you were going." Thus begins Betty MacDonald's memoir of her year in a sanatorium just outside Seattle battling the "White Plague." MacDonald uses her offbeat humor to make the most of her time in the TB sanatorium-making all of us laugh in the process.
