Cancer Made Me a Shallower Person puts Engelberg's life in focus the best way she knows how with cartoons. Her graphic approach to a very serious subject follows in the tradition of Art Spiegelman's award-winning Maus, but in her own offbeat, on-target, and darkly, devastatingly humorous style. From sex and wigs to nausea and causes Was it overzealous cheese consumption or not enough multivitamins? Engelberg leaves no aspect of cancer unexamined. In this remarkable "memoir in comics," she takes a clear-eyed, deliciously sardonic look at caring friends and relatives, doctors, treatments, and support groups while never losing her guarded optimism and, most important, her sense of humor. In this extremely funny and daringly honest read, Miriam Engelberg draws and writes her life experience dealing with breast cancer.

This remarkably unique "memoir in comics" leaves no aspect of cancer unexamined. A great read for those who've read the inspirational and the educational and now want something honest and real.

About the Author
Miriam Engelberg was forty-three when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Like anyone faced with a life-altering personal trauma, she sought out a coping mechanism. While fellow patients championed the benefits of support groups and hypnotherapy, Engelberg found her greatest comfort in drawing, her lifelong passion.
