Susan E. Honeyman is Professor of English at University of Nebraska at Kearney, USA.
'The Western contemporary ethos confers innocence and nostalgia on childhood, a tendency that too often belittles, denies or oversimplifies the suffering that real children experience. Young sufferers from migraine are consummate examples of this dilemma, as Susan Honeyman documents well in Child Pain, Migraine and Invisible Disability. Health care providers, who generally ask children to report pain using a reductionist single answer on a pain scale, would do well to consider Honeyman's complex, humane account (including first-person narratives).'-Cindy Dell Clark, Rutgers University, U.S.A
