The Beast in My Head is author Sonia Bitca’s memoir about her harrowing battle with a brain tumor-which she dubs “the beast”-and her journey from diagnosis, to surgery, hospitalization, and recovery. But it is also much more than that! It is a stream of consciousness treatise on the author’s dramatic childhood; an account of her adventures as a cook with the Royal Canadian Navy; and an ode to an assortment of horses and other creatures, as well as to the family, friends and healthcare workers who supported her at the lowest and most frightening time in her life. Consistently candid and contemplative, mesmerizing and moving, this memoir will inspire and awe readers, and likely help them discover their own reserves of courage and strength if or when their own realities suddenly change.
