Product description

Forty-seven jewel-like drawings by Ronald Searle made for his wife, Monica, each time she underwent chemotherapy.On New Year's Eve 1969, Monica Searle was diagnosed with a rare and virulent form of breast cancer. Each time she underwent treatment, Ronald produced a Mrs Mole drawing to cheer every dreaded chemotherapy session and evoke the blissful future ahead'. Filled with light and illuminated in glowing colours, the drawings speak of love, optimism and hope.

The story of Monica's survival against the odds and the part played by the encouragement of her husband will move many people who have either experienced cancer for themselves or beenaffected through a close family member or friend. Smaller hardback book in as new condition in a similar condition unclipped dust jacket. One small ink inscription on fep.. No other marks or inscriptions. Not ex-library.
