Funny and quick-moving memoir. ( )

This book was cute. It was funny and sad and strange. In some respects I didn’t like the way the author spoke or thought about things and the way she stayed with someone who she didn’t like in the first place just seemed stupid. However by the end of the book I was entranced and I did not want it to end. ( )

Book description
When Tania Katan was 21 years old she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She survived, minus a breast. Exactly 10 years later it happened again. By age 31 Katan was a two-time breast cancer survivor with the scars to prove it and a sense of humor forged by the unthinkable. Her memoir, loaded with rage and blistering humor, tells the tale of living through two bouts with death and is woven through with stories of picking up women while bald, coping with her supportive but neurotic family, running in two 10K races, and pledging to never ever date a psychotic woman again. An unforgettable account of survival.
