"Bridget Jones with Breast Cancer"

Buy the bookTwo years ago I wrote my original review of "The C Word" Lisa Lynch's memoir of early-stage breast cancer. It was a treat of a book with a cupcake on the front. I really enjoyed Lisa's irreverent, Chick-Brit-Lit style of writing.

I continued to follow her cheeky blog. Lisa's cancer became "secondary" moving to bones and brains, and coping with it became the center of her life.

Last year her blog and twitter feed went silent. Last week we got the news Lisa had passed.

Lisa was a pro, she would have been a literary success without cancer, and it was a treat reading her.


There is still a BBC tv movie adaptation on the way, I am so sorry she didn't live to see it.

  14. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult
    to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you've done a amazing job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
