9780143115632: Lopsided: A Memoir

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 Minorca. But none of these unusual experiences prepared her for the most dramatic turn her life would take: the diagnosis 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 not a typical cancer memoir; it's the bitingly funny debut of a natural-born social observer.

About the Author:

Meredith Norton is an avid rower and intermittently pursuing a graduate degree in physics and engineering.

Review:

" Less a cancer survival guide and more a lovably unfiltered e-mail from a hilarious friend."
-People

" Norton [offers an] assured tone, keen eye and dry wit. I hope to encounter this clear, incisive, highly amusing voice again. Soon."
-The Orlando Sentinel

"A truly elegant memoir."
-O, The Oprah Magazine

" Norton strikes a successful balance between light and heavy, keeping her audience consistently engaged."
-San Francisco Chronicle
