Review:

splendidly written memoir about dealing with the unexpected personality change the actress suffered after brain surgery'. Sunday Times ('a sensitive rumination on the minutiae of illness and the ways in which fortitude can overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.’)

Sunday Telegraph ('As a work of literature, Jane Lapotaire's book is possibly the most ambitious of them all...it is a brave and bracing book and one that deserves a wide readership.’)

Ireland on Sunday ('Lapotaire's frank story..filled with wry asides.’)

Irish News (‘Like Antony Sher, she is brutally honest about herself and her state of mind, and writes with such vivid immediacy that you marvel at her honesty and recall.’)

Book Description:

Jane Lapotaire, was one of the lucky ones who survived 'a brain attack', the 3rd biggest killer after cancer & heart attacks. This is her extraordinary story - full of rage, frustration, new love & cautious triumph - adapting to a life irretrievably changed.
