Cancer Schmancer

Genre: Nonfiction; Author: Fran Drescher; Publisher: Warner Books

After eight doctors and two years of misdiagnoses, Drescher, who played the brassy title character on ”The Nanny,” discovered she had uterine cancer – and found she really did have something to whine about. The actress infuses her writing with humor (on her umpteenth gynecological appointment, she dabs Chanel No. 5 beneath her navel for the doctor’s benefit) and honesty (though her musings on post-op lovin’ with her beau veer into TMI territory).
