"Cancer is not a laughing matter, as I was told by a cross German lady from Dortmund when I showed her this journal. She had herself had breast cancer and is right of course; there are lots of things that are not fun about cancer, most of them unavoidable. I was therefore as surprised as the next person to realise that a huge amount of funny things happen on the way to chemo, or indeed on the way to most places, and that once you get your eye in, you completely forget to be scared..." This is not just an educational book about cancer, although it is certainly safe to give to cancer patients as a cheerful present. More importantly, it sheds new light on: why Kim Kardashian is worth Keeping Up With; what playlists to make for MRI scans; the truth behind the legend of Medea; bikini etiquette on a deserted beach; what to do with a glut of rainbow chard; what an Oscar-winner should say in an acceptance speech; how to deal with cold-callers selling life insurance; and what to wear on a March Against Menopause (layers, obviously)...
