A description of “hell on earth”
It does not include Islamists or even terrorists and affects only one person.
My sister died after suffering from MS for many years. So this dis-ease is part of my family’s history. Also, my cousin Fred Gagnon died an early death (50 something) because of that dis-ease.
But I had never read such a bleak description of the effects of it until I read this in the NY Review of Books, which, over the years, has published many Judt essays.
This is as close to “hell on earth” as I like to contemplate!
