Insert False-Memoir-Du-Jour Joke

by Elisa Albert

Tonight, at a reading in Seattle (Elliott Bay is beauteous), a very nice lady showed up and introduced herself as a fellow cancer survivor. She had briefly examined my book and said she was there to support me because my book is about surviving a brain tumor.

Which is really very kind. But I wrote a novel. And the main character, in fact, dies. I felt sort of bad clarifying.
