Wisenberg's writing has been compared to a mix of Leon Wieseltier and Fran Lebowitz, and in this book, she has Wieseltier's erudition and Lebowitz's self-deprecating cleverness: "If anybody ever offers you the choice between suffering and depression, take the suffering. And I don't mean physical suffering. I mean emotional suffering. I am hereby endorsing psychic suffering over depression."

A must-read for any cancer patient
I loved this book! Of course I agree with her on the Pink Ribbons idea, and I liked following along with the progress (up and down) of the henna on her head. I've not come across such well fleshed-out characters in an autobiography before and that made this one worth the read! I knew all her friends, doctors, characters, from the young woman who served coffee down the street to the people she describes as sunny side-up oncologists.
Perhaps part of the recognition lies in having been there, and known them all. Still, even if you are not currently in the cancer dance, the book stands alone as extremely well done. Brava!
