CHARACTERS Ì The Story Within By genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways These writers reflect that breadth of response yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what health is or whose life has value They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity to deepen debate and generate uestions They or their families are affected by Huntington’s disease Alzheimer’s disease cancer genetic deafness or blindness schizophr. As genetics becomes a growing field understanding what encompasses a genetic identity will be an important aspect in living our livesThis collection of essays from various authors describes what it s like to live in the fear and knowledge of having a genetic trait The essays can really open up viewpoints you may have not considered before There are some pacing issues with the order of essays and seems to pick up near the end This may seem deliberate since it starts at a slower pace Just like the issue itself some of the essays conflict with each other because the authors are not sure about what to do with their own identity
