Within days his friends mobilized to arrange grocery deliveries, transport, companionship, and housekeeping duties—they called themselves “Warriors for Fred.”

Fred chose to write his astonishing cancer memoir as a diary, acknowledging that all the greatest warriors from Sun Tzu to swordsman Murasashi to Bruce Lee wrote daily diaries because warfare against a most formidable enemy will be won, ultimately, on the philosophical level. With incredibly detailed entries Fred talks frankly about his battle—his meticulous research, his various treatments, his successes, and his failures. Together, he and his loved ones discuss plans for future artistic projects: a new opera on Antony and Cleopatra, a project with a native Alaskan totem carver, and an underwater ballet for synchronized swimmers. He learns to find joy in the simple things: the beauty of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, a fresh pork bun, or a night of Battlestar Galactica on DVD. Above all, we learn what it means to truly live in the present—through Fred’s unflinching description of the effects of colon cancer—and about his search not just for “a cure” in a medical sense, but for true healing. For Fred, this includes understanding the way of the warrior—one who fights for beauty, justice, health, equity, and sustainability.

That we at once live longer in "developed" countries, while being sicker, is a cruel paradox of late capitalist "development." The capitalist matrix makes the world more toxic, while developing and marketing novel treatments for the resultant illnesses. As the title of Fred Ho's DIARIES OF A RADICAL CANCER WARRIOR argues, this produces a need to FIGHT CANCER AND CAPITALISM AT THE CELLULAR LEVEL. In this, Ho extends a line of Leftist thought which sees the body as the ultimate critical site for resisting the pervasive commodification of the life world. (I'm put in mind of the comment by Cornelius Matthews, in the mid-nineteenth century, that "Hostile systems contend for our living bodies, and we are buried by corporations"). Within this tradition, Ho is remarkably lucid in facing his interior battle with advanced colorectal cancer outward toward the elaboration and performance of a revolutionary aesthetic. In the face of devastating physical loses, depredations, and interruptions--which he documents in graphic, matter-of-fact, un-self-pitying ways--Ho goes on making original art, evolving as an activist-thinker, and attempting through a series of self-revisions to become the change he would like to see. Part of this involves experiencing, sharing, and mobilizing the love of a circle of friends and supporters, whose words and contributions Ho weaves into the fabric of his own narrative. In this sense, as in much of the literature of alter-globalization, "love" is modeled as counter-politics, the force most necessary for the transformation of society. The entries thus become both a guidebook through "the land of the sick" (Susan Sontag) and a map toward personal and social healing. "If way to the better there be/it exacts a full look at the worst," wrote Thomas Hardy. Out of his own tribulations, Fred Ho has made something extraordinary--an uplifting, hopeful and philosophical call to arms. Highly recommended.
