THE JOSLIN DIABETES QUICK AND EASY COOKBOOK

Living with diabetes doesn't mean being limited to bland, tasteless foods. This book contains recipes for 1 to 4 people for every time of day--from breakfast to power lunches to delicious dinner pastas. Nutritional analysis and calorie exchange information accompany each recipe. There are also serving instructions, advice on what to eat when away from home, or relying on restaurants, and a section on commonly asked questions about nutrition. The two authors have diabetes themselves. 288 pages. (Firesdie/Simon & Schuster ISBN 0-684-83923-7, US$ 15.00)

 

NEEDLES-ANDIE DOMINICK

Beautifully written, revelatory, and profoundly affecting, Needles is a memoir of growing up with type 1 diabetes. Andie Dominick recounts her transformation from a free-spirited kid who enjoyed giving shots to her stuffed animals with her sister's castaway needles to a lifelong patient who must learn to inject herself twice a day. This is a story of courage, love and hope in the face of fear, and a tale of a strong will to live with a disease that takes so much. (Scribner ISBN 0-684-84232-7)
