The Best Medicine
Funny, moving and strangely empowering in its determination to laugh in the face of the seemingly unbearable, it's hard to believe that it's a first novel. Look, just buy it. You won't regret the decision.The story steers its way through the tricky subject of coping with cancer to great effect. A story that could so easily resort to pathos rises to become a tenacious tale, invested with genuinely funny moments.
