The ‘rollercoaster ride’ of cancer: an Interview with James Landale

Love for Now cover

It was great to hear the BBC’s Deputy Political Editor James Landale’s interview about his experience of treatment for cancer on World at One this lunchtime. He was kind enough to recommend Love for Now, my memoir of treatment for the same disease, to listeners who might be going through similar experiences.

In particular it was great to hear James’ beautiful dismantling of the notion of cancer as a ‘battle’.

  1. Hi Ant,

    We saw David Smith at the Exeter Respect festival last week and he told us.that Tina is being treated for leukaemia.  I don’t know whether you already knew that.
