Summary
When she was diagnosed in late 2015 with a tumour sitting right in the language centre of her brain, Georgia Blain's only warning was a niggling sense that her speech was slightly awry. After the shock of a bleak prognosis and a long gruelling treatment schedule, she immediately turns to writing to rebuild her language and herself. At the same time, her mother moves into a nursing home with Alzheimer's, and her best friend and mentor is also diagnosed with the same brain tumour. All three of them are writers, with language at the core of their being
