Milkshakes and morphine: a memoir of love and loss

Fox, Genevieve, author

When Genevieve first feels a lump on her throat she ignores it. She has form with cancer - it took her mother when Genevieve was only nine - and she is simply not willing to go there. As the lump grows Genevieve has no choice but to engage. But from her first diagnosis - wearing in a favourite frock for a party that evening - to the succour she derives from friendships during difficult days to come, Genevieve confronts cancer with sass as well as a dogged optimism fuelled partly by her own young sons. Genevieve's story weaves between now and her childhood, a rackety and fascinating yet precarious period for her and her orphaned sister
