Daring, sly, and unlike any other book you've read, this memoir-in-poems tackles cancer with a bawdy wit guaranteed to make you laugh your wig off.As a vibrant woman in her early forties, mother of two, poet, artist, and teacher, Micki… Myers decided to confront her cancer diagnosis head on with the sharpest tools in her arsenal: namely, her sense of humor and unbridled poetic license. The result is a charming, poignant, laugh-out-loud collection that hits all the highs (morphine) and lows (everything else) of being a cancer patient and surviving with your spirit intact (even if your boobs are not). It's Probably Nothing... is the perfect gift for a friend in crisis, providing laughter, wisdom, and much-needed perspective. From losing your hair (even, ahem, down there) and gaining two bouncy silicone strangers, to the pitfalls of marijuana therapy and the endless chemo-room muzak "that makes you think/survival might be overrrated," Myers reminds you that you're not alone and that it's okay to laugh.
