Description

"'Chemotherapy," my friend Sally shook her head sympathetically when I was first diagnosed. But then her face brightened. "You're gonna get so SKINNY!"' It's no fun being a bald girl in Houston, the Big Hair Capital of America. That's what Joni Rodgers found out when she got cancer. Luckily, Joni's humour never fails her, and this rollercoaster ride through her terrifying illness is unlike any other 'cancer memoir' you will ever have read. Full of the blackest wit, the fiercest honesty, and the snappiest one-liners, BALD IN THE LAND OF BIG HAIR is simply an extraordinary book. Joni writes with the same unblinking courage with which she faced her cancer, and her book is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit and the importance of a darn good wig.show more
