"Katherine Mortenhoe's world looks very similar to our own, except that in this near future medical science has found the cure for death--or eliminated nearly every cause for it other than old age. So when Katherine is diagnosed with a terminal brain disease caused by an inability to process an ever-increasing volume of sensory input, she immediately becomes a celebrity to the "pain-starved public." But Katherine will not agree to be the star of the TV show Human Destiny, her last days will not be recorded by any cameras. She doesn't realize that from the moment of her diagnosis, she's been watched, not only by television producers but by a new kind of reporter, one with no visible camera, who is always recording behind his never-blinking eye"--

Sometimes you wish you could find a book written in the past that is "not recognized properly for its contents". I feel like I found one of those books today. --- Reading is slow but thought provoking.
