Summary
In 2015, at the age of 38, Nina Riggs, the great-great-great-granddaughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson, was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it metastasised later that year. Her mother had died only a few months earlier from multiple myeloma. In this book, she tells her story in a series of absurd, poignant and often hilarious vignettes drawn from a life that has 'no real future or arc left to it, yet still goes on as if it does'
