Milkshakes and Morphine: A Memoir of Love and Loss
When Genevieve Fox finds a lump in her throat, she turns up for the hospital diagnosis in a party frock and fancy hair. I can't have cancer, she thinks. I've done my hair. But there is another reason she can't countenance cancer. She was orphaned to it at the age of nine.
Genevieve's story weaves together past and present as she recalls her rackety, unconventional childhood, while also facing the spectre of being lost to her young boys. Yet she confronts her treatment with the same sassy survival instinct that characterised her childhood misadventures. She takes life's precariousness and turns it on its head.
`Life-enhancing... Original and wonderful'
`Exquisite and tender'
