From the Publisher...

" When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, I joked that I couldn't decide between alcoholism and overeating as a coping strategy. My wife suggested I write about it instead. She is always right. I couldn't write a cloying, sentimental story of inspiring courage, so instead I wrote what was real to me-- fear, lust, annoyance, love, fatigue, resentment, existential terror, horror movies, alcohol, and country music. It's not pretty, but it is real. I hope you like it."
This book is a horror story and a comedy, but, most of all, it is a love story. It is the story of what happens to a man who fears that his best friend might leave him forever. Feeling helpless, angry, and scared, Brendan Halpin sat down at his computer late at night or early in the morning and wrote. Pages poured out of him whenever something struck him as funny, whenever he was annoyed with a medical professional or family member, whenever he was terrified, and whenever he couldn't sleep-- in other words, every day. What came out is sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious, but always honest-- a journey into the head of a man whose wife is critically ill.
This book will take you to the depths of fear and despair. It will also make you laugh until you feel sick. If that sounds contradictory, well, start reading.
