"Gilman’s work is important because it examines three major writers, often not seen within the Canadian-American literary canon, from the perspective of their common illness . . . it opens the question of the relationship between ethnicity, Diaspora, disease, and literature in a fascinating and intelligent way."—Sander Gilman, Distinguished Professor of the Liberal Arts and Sciences, Emory University

"Gilman is a skillful writer, with a very engaging and readable style. He utilizes a wealth of secondary sources, incorporates robust background literature about tuberculosis along with close analysis of the poetry of three major Jewish immigrant writers, and offers new insight into the works of Yehoash, Leivick and Shtern from the unusual perspective of the influence of tuberculosis."—Jeanne E. Abrams, author of Revolutionary Medicine: The Founding Fathers and Mothers in Sickness and in Health
