AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Bone was a prominent newspaper journalist and columnist when in 2004 she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow that can be treated but not cured. Dry-eyed, but often darkly humourous, Bad Hair Days describes a journey many baby boomers make - working and meeting the demands of everyday life, minus hair and under the influence of chemo, while, outside the front door, the world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket.' (back cover)

Notes

  • Epigraph: This is a special way of being afraid/ No trick dispels. Religion used to try,/ that vast, moth-eaten musical brocade/ Created to pretend we never die - Philip Larkin, 'Aubade'
