Summary
While most people have some loose idea of the organ transplantation process itself, life pre- and post-operation are little-covered areas of a transplantee's experience. DYING OF LAUGHTER is a fictional, personal exploration of a transplant patient's life. Humor, interpersonal relationships, and medical science are all discussed in their relationship to the experience.
