Naked Imperfection: A Memoir
"Gill Deacon's memoir is the story of a young mother who endures a harrowing illness and finds her way to a truth we all need to understand. This is a fierce life, beautifully examined, and not to be missed."
— Linda Spalding, Governor General's Award-winning author of The Purchase
"A fearless and funny book about cancer and survival that dissects the assumptions behind our toxin-fed, health-obsessed culture along the way, uncovering a core truth—that a great deal of our anxiety about the state of the planet is a proxy for the existential terror borne of our utter lack of control over our own fate. It is to Gill Deacon's credit as a storyteller that such a dark journey seems almost whimsical in her recounting."
— Chris Turner, author of The War on Science and The Leap
