[Arthur] Frank’s book The Wounded Storyteller is about the need of ill people to tell their stories as a way of reconstructing “the map of their lives”. His thesis is that storytelling is a way to create order from the chaos generated by serious illness. … An illness narrative is told to someone. There is really no such thing as a self-story because stories are inherently social productions. That is, all self-stories are really self-other stories.
