In 1992, Marilyn French was told she had one year to live. A smoker of 48 years she was diagnosed as having cancer of the oesophagus, a cancer which is almost always fatal. Five years on, having battled with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, a heart attack and her back breaking, she is very much alive. And - astonishingly - her body shows no sign of cancer. A SEASON IN HELL is a remarkable, unsentimental, life-affirming journey from an indomitable woman who brought the fighting power she has always brought to the war between the sexes, to the war that for a while raged from within her.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A vigorous book * Mary Margaret McCabe, TLS *
The strangest thing about A SEASON IN HELL is that, even though it is a meticulous catalogue of her descent into this other, diminished, way of life ... it ends up being immensely cheering * Maureen Freely, GUARDIAN *
The struggle to assert control over chaos, and the painful realisation that your former life can never be resumed, is a powerful theme of the book * Julie Wheelwright, INDEPENDENT *
An awesome testament to the bravery of a woman who manages to defy a supposedly unbeatable disease. * BIG ISSUE *
