bookshelves: 2012-reads, autobio-memoirs
Read from August 10 to 12, 2012

There is absolutely nothing unique about this rambling, indulgent "memoir." Every other recalled memory involves some mention of an exotic vacation or super-hot ex-boyfriend. There is cancer, there is treatment, and then there is nothing: the ending is forced, awkward, and sudden.

Every person who has or is battling cancer deserves immense respect for their strength and perseverance, but not every survivor needs to write a bloody memoir.

Oh, and to whomever wrote the line comparing her "razor-sharp wit" to that of David Sedaris: No. Just no.
