The Embroidered Cancer Comic
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon
Decreased libido is a common effect of cancer treatment, but it can be awkward to talk about and it is often brushed under the carpet. Elizabeth Shefrin doesn't shy away from this most intimate of topics, and in this embroidered comic she shares with gentle humour how her husband's cancer treatment affected their sex life.
Elizabeth Shefrin is a textile artist and illustrator. Her husband has been through treatment for prostate cancer, and this comic is based on their experiences. Elizabeth lives in British Columbia.
