Lopsided is not your ordinary cancer memoir. Meredith Norton displays the razor-sharp wit of a masterful humorist as she chronicles her experience, from the first appearance of her bizarre symptoms while she was living in Paris to moving to California to live with her compulsive parents and their five television sets. Along with hilarious and harrowing portrait of her treatments, she offers equally amusing memories of her offbeat life, rants about well-meaning family and friends, and rails against self-pity. Funny, irreverent, and down-to-earth, Norton's memoir brings a refreshing burst of attitude to a difficult experience she refuses to be intimidated by.

display_description Not your ordinary cancer memoir, this is the debut of a masterful humorist. Norton chronicles every step of her experience, starting with her bizarre symptoms while living in Paris to moving back home to California and living with her compulsive parents and their five television sets. Irreverent and incredibly funny, Norton rails against self-pity and victimhood and rants about the innumerable copies of Lance Armstrong's cancer survival book pressed on her by well-meaning family and friends: "If surviving this ... required any of the Lance-like traits, such as willingness to physically exert myself, I was as good as dead." Alongside the harrowing portrait of her treatments, Norton offers equally amusing memories from her offbeat life in an affluent African-American family as well as her marriage to a Frenchman.--From publisher description.
