Michael Solomon

Synopsis

Now It's Funny: How I Survived Cancer, Divorce and Other Looming Disasters is a modern hybrid; on one hand a page-turning medical thriller, and on the other a hilarious romp through the mind of a man bedazzled by fatherhood and midlife. What makes it so different from other "illness" memoirs is that it reads like a movie: in its frenetic pace, its intensity, and its improbable and relentless humor. In the same way that A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius was grounded in a cancer story, Even Odds... introduces a fresh new voice into the realm of non-fiction, and transcends its medical milieu to tell a heartfelt story about a father's search for meaning and his undying devotion to his sons.

Describe the style(s) you like (traditional, modern, etc.)

Modern but not cutesy. I don't want people to feel it's another cancer book with a bunch of cleverness. Rather, it should fell like if Paul Rudd suddenly woke up in the middle of The Bourne Conspiracy.
