Leah Garchik in conversation with author Mary Merv Ladd

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Mary Ladd will be in conversation with SF Chronicle columnist Leah Garchik about her new book, The Wig Diaries.

The Wig Diaries is Mary Ladd's debut disrespectful cancer book, delivered with bold gallows humor to intimately address the gravity of cancer, invites the reader to bear witness to both the horror and the joke(s). Armed with humor and creative sensibility, Ladd robs her diagnosis of its dour weightiness. Refusing to tiptoe around the gnarlier elements of treatment and recovery, the narrative is powerful in its unvarnished honesty. Infused with a contagious lust for life and exemplified by hilarious anecdotes.

· A uniquely fresh modern and black comedy take on cancer
· Covers and pokes fun at everything from diagnosis to treatment to medical bills
· Illustrated by San Francisco Chronicle cartoonist Don Asmussen, who has brain cancer for the second time
