A doctor once told cartoonist and author Suzy Becker that the seizures she'd been having were probably stress-related. But after a close friend witnessed one of those seizures and advised Becker to get a second opinion, the truth was known: it was a brain tumor. In 1999 Becker underwent an unusual procedure in which she remained awake while surgeons removed the tumor. Now she's written a memoir of that most dreadful, curious, and sometimes oddly funny year of her life.
