 About the Book 

When Kjersti was seventeen, she could run faster and longer than everybody else. Now, a few years later, she finds herself lying in a nursing home. An idea forms in her head: perhaps if she could succeed in writing a novel, she might feel like a human being again? She begins filling sticky notes with prose...and things begin to happen. Monsterhuman is a moving and humorous account of being afraid, getting well, finding the right words, and becoming a real person.A tremendously good novel about disease, body and identity. Who am I when my body is ill, year after year?... One can do nothing but applaud. --V rt Land
