Lopsided: How Having Breast Cancer Can Be Really Distracting

by Norton, Meredith

Condition: Very Good/No Jacket as Issued


New York: Viking, 2008. BT2 - An advance uncorrected proof trade paperback in near fine condition that has light discoloration and shelf wear. A hilarious and wickedly irreverent look at life with cancer. 8.25"x5.5", 213 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed.. Trade Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Advance Reading Copy (ARC).

By the age of thirty -four , Meredith Norton had been a hymnal editor, art restorer, game-show producer, and a public school teacher. She'd even lived in a tree house and shepherded goats in Minorca. But none of these unusual experiences prepared her for the most dramatic turn her life would take: the diagnosis of an aggressive form of breast cancer. In this brilliantly funny and irreverent memoir, Norton approaches the disease with a refreshing combination of humor and tenacity, railing against victimhood and self-pity and refusing to become a stereotype. Told with a razor-sharp wit akin to David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs, Lopsided is most definitely not a typical cancer memoir; it's the bitingly funny debut of a natural-born social observer.
