By the age of thirty -four, Meredith Norton had been a hymnal editor, art restorer, game-show producer, and a public school teacher. She'd even lived in a tree house and shepherded goats in Mirca. But ne of these unusual experiences prepared her for the most dramatic turn her life would take: the diagsis of an aggressive form of breast cancer. In this brilliantly funny and irreverent memoir, Norton approaches the disease with a refreshing combination of humor and tenacity, railing against victimhood and self-pity and refusing to become a stereotype. Told with a razor-sharp wit akin to David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs, Lopsided is most definitely t a typical cancer memoir; it's the bitingly funny debut of a natural-born social observer.
