Flying Crooked
A Story of Accepting Cancer
By Author Jan Michael
Release Date: June 2005

CDN$ 23.95

There are many books about the processes people go through when they discover they have cancer. What makes Flying Crooked different is the way in which Jan Michael accepts the disease and its consequences. She continues to enjoy life, refuses radiotherapy, and rejects the idea of even wearing a prosthesis after one of her breasts has been removed. The choices she makes are in sharp contrast to those made by her ex-lover Simon, who shortly after her operation is diagnosed with prostate cancer. Their different ways of coping form a well-balanced diptych: on her part, acceptance and the peace that this brings; on his part, fighting and anger at the cost of precious energy and enjoyment.

Flying Crooked describes the process of a search for balance. The open, direct, and unsentimental manner in which Michael describes her decisions as well as her experiences in the hospital and out of it are deeply refreshing. And yet this autobiographical memoir is more than an account of coping with disease: it is an inspirational story of love and friendship and faith.
