Summary

These are the thoughts flitted, fluttered, and formed as Teresita Cruz Del Rosario battled COVID-19 and experienced life as never before: one of danger and fear, but also hope, admiration, and trust

Far From My Hospital Bed is a collection of non-fiction essays that were cobbled over two years, starting from the author's twenty-five day stay in a Singapore hospital recovering from COVID-19. It is a book that is part story-telling, part autobiography, part meditation, part memory, part history, part sociology, and part manifesto.
There are many tones in each of the essays: sorrow, grief, fear, anxiety, enthusiasm, admiration, celebration, remembrance, humor, sarcasm, admonishment. There are chapters on gardens, noodles, toilet paper, God, Twiggy, sex, Zoom, and the Apocalypse.
Finally, this book is big on hope for a redemptive future for humanity and a plea to remake our world.
