We gave it an A-

Life was blossoming for ”lipstick-obsessed, wine-swilling” cartoonist Marchetto, when, at 43, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, a crisis recounted in this candy-colored memoir.

For Fans of…
Sex and the City.

Does It Deliver?
Marchetto revels in fab details (she wears metallic Lucite pumps to chemo ”for support”) that alternately diminish and heighten Vixen‘s poignancy — but always make for foxy illos.
