A Diary of Not-Your-Average Nine Months
A moving, funny and inspiring graphic memoir by a woman who discovered she had cancer whilst she was pregnant
Matilda Tristram was 17 weeks pregnant and looking forward to having her first baby when she discovered she had cancer.
This touching graphic memoir, never morose or self-pitying, starts when Matilda was diagnosed and ends when her chemotherapy finished. Recording the awkward conversations, the highs and lows of treatment, and the reality of still having to queue too long for croissants, Matilda captures her experiences with style and warmth. Along the way she cherishes the small details of life, and learns not to sweat the big things. Her beautiful and boisterous son James was born without complications.
