Glittering a Turd : The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller, Hardback Book

Glittering a Turd : The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller Hardback



Kris was living a totally normal life as a twenty-three-year-old: travelling the world, falling in love, making plans. However, when she found a lump in her boob and was told that it was not only cancer, but also incurable, life took on a completely new meaning.

She was diagnosed at an age when life wasn't something to be grateful for, but a goddamn right. Little did Kris know it was cancer that would lead her to a life she had never considered: a happy one.

From founding a charity to visiting Downing Street, campaigning at festivals to appearing on TV, and being present at the birth of her nephew; in the face of all the possible prognoses, Kris is surviving, thriving, and resolutely living. Glittering a Turd is more than just another cancer memoir; it's a handbook for living life to the fullest, shining a new perspective on survival and learning to glitter your own turd, whatever it might be.

Kris has survived the unsurvivable for twelve years.

Here, she begins to discover why.
