How much can we lose and still remain whole? In the course of her life, Ginny Jordan has lost both breasts and her ovaries to cancer, undergone chemotherapy, experienced debilitating vertigo, and other conditions—at the same time as she has been a daughter, wife, mother of three, and member of a large, active family. In prose that is startling and evocative, witty and generous, Clear Cut explores biographically, symbolically, and culturally the meanings of nine different parts of the body, of how much we can lose and still remain whole and know who we are. Jordan mourns for and celebrates the wisdom and beauty of body and soul as they struggle to find endurance in the face of multiple setbacks, and the courage to confront loss and separation and celebrate life and community instead.
