Reading about cancer patients from a 1950s Russian novel is a like peering into a different world, yet one that’s strikingly similar at the same time. “Cancer Ward: a Novel” by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn addresses universal thoughts about treatment, doctors and whether the patient will make it through treatment. The feelings of isolation some patients experience are shown in this novel, and that element of universality can be helpful to those going through treatment now. Solzhenitsyn had cancer and entered one of these wards for his own diagnosis and recovered from the disease.
