A Hole in My Genes by Dr. Jodie Fleming. A new memoir about the author's fight with cancer, made particularly poignant because Fleming is a psychologist who worked with cancer patients, had cared for her husband with testicular cancer eight years prior, and whose diagnosis came exactly one month after the end of her marriage.
