Simply brilliant!. You'll laugh, cry, and snicker inappropriately. Sweeney takes snippets of life and wraps it in warmth. I felt like I was in the favored seat of the town gossip. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553379232, Paperback)

A truly horrible story is told very well in this memoir of family tragedy and recovery from life- threatening cancer. After leaving Saturday Night Live, comedienne Julia Sweeney was newly divorced and looking forward to a new life in Los Angeles. But her optimism was shattered when she learned that her brother had been diagnosed with cancer. He moved in with her, and before long Sweeney found out that she was suffering from a rare form of cervical cancer. The story of Sweeney, her brother, and her parents (whose moving in with her gave odd comic relief to all the health problems) is a moving tale, tragedy leavened with moments of good humor and uplifting insight.
