Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fran Drescher is back and out to prove that even in life's darkest moments, there is unexpected comedy.

Part inspirational cancer-survival story, part memoir-as-laugh-riot, Cancer Schmancer picks up where Enter Whining left off. After the publication of the New York Times bestseller, Fran Drescher found herself in an intense downward spiral: She was dealing with a separation from a long and complicated relationship and her TV series was facing declining ratings. Compounded by symptoms no one could adequately explain, Fran entered a dark period that ironically yielded a gold mine of humorous insights into what really matters. Today, Fran's got her health, and offers the following lessons:

  • Accepting the hand life deals you
  • Tests that can save your life
  • Fears and relationship follies
  • Recovery and picking up the pieces
  • And more!

Synopsis:

Part inspirational cancer-survival story, part memoir-as-laugh-riot, this title picks up where Drescher's last book, "Enter Whining, " left off. With her trademark humor, Drescher tells of her indefatigable search for answers and the cancer diagnosis that she ultimately beat. 24 photos.
