Toso, Erec. 2007. Zero at the Bone: Rewriting Life After a Snakebite. Tucson, Arizona:University of Arizona Press.
Erec says, "What started as a newspaper article turned into a book. It's a story about healing and about re-thinking one's 'life stories.' The story begins with the snakebite in Tucson in my front yard, but then travels a journey in which I learn about snakes, the desert, and myself. I decided to follow the writing wherever it took me, no matter how circuitous, winding, or dark the path. I learned about re-writing in a big way."
