The C-Word is an honest and forthright account of cancer. It deals with the loneliness the partner of a sufferer faces, the gruelling treatments of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and the terror and calm of facing death. A story of a powerful lesbian partnership, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of community.

I highly recommend [The] C-Word as a book that ought to grace the bookshelf of every lesbian household.

Ruth Wykes, Women Out West
I started to read this book on the weekend and found myself unable to put it down. For me reading the story of two lesbians, one with cancer, the other caring for her was extremely powerful. Their honest account of the treatments left me sitting with my mouth open. I was especially interested with Maurs obsession about losing her body hair and her delight when it began to grow back. This books is written as a diary, the style works well and like the back blurb says C-word is 'utterly unputdownable'.
