    Just had to have a little cry at the end thereA terribly sad but remarkably heartwarming graphic 'novel' it's actually autobiographical about Matilda dealing with a pregnancy and eventual motherhood whilst tackling cancer and treatment 'Probably Nothing' depicts a very emotional time period from Mathilda going through such a uniue experience that most will never be able to sympathise with and obviously this read is understandably melancholic But Matilda manages to maintain an inspiring mostly optimistic attitude throughout and the book is peppered with some genuinely hilarious moments of dark humour A lot of these are in reference to what kind of beverage etc her shit most looks like and how uninhibited she has become with her body after she's been through so much with it I especially liked a great moment where her armpit and pubic hair starts to fall out and she comments that it suggests she is no longer fighting the patriarchy The book is split into nine chapters each signifying a new month and is laid out in classic comic strip style Mathilda talks us through doctors appointments her therapy trips to her parents house days out casual nights in eating pizza and lots You can tell that she was being very honest and raw and some of the sentences accompanied by their lovely drawings really gripped my heart She seemed to have a really awesome support network and I really loved that her friends and family members seemed to try their upmost not to victimise her and really appeared to remain as positive as possibleAll in all a really special story and a book that I'm glad to own so I can revisit it in the future

    35 starsA graphic memoir of pregnancy and cancer Matilda Tristram was 15 weeks pregnant when she was unexpectedly diagnosed with bowel cancer Probably Nothing describes her decisions about treatment she chose to have chemotherapy and go forward with her pregnancy Chemo while pregnant and with a new born really doesn't sound like fun not that it ever sounds fun Matilda documents her daily experiences and also the small things that she now notices that she wouldn't have seen before like the look of those heading to chemo they're tired looking wearing too many clothes and have stiff wigsActually a lot of her joys seem somehow similar to lockdowncorona times of 2020 She starts making sourdoughSmall things like eating grapes in the park seem significant these daysSuddenly cry on the bus I think because putting on makeup and going out for the evening is normal and fun and it feels good to be doing normal fun things againShe even slips in wuthering as a word I don't think I've seen that before

    Honest comic on a hard year of pregnancy while battling cancer While describing very difficult times the author manages to include some comic parts and balance the hard stuff out with her observations of the small and bigger good things around her

    Matilda Tristram sent me her book Probably Nothing A Diary of not your average Nine Months and it’s one of those books that begs to be finished in one sitting I did it in two but only because I had to tear myself away for something urgent – otherwise I could have chugged along without caring about the time It’s a graphic memoir that recounts her journey – from finding out she had cancer while she was pregnant at 17 weeks to giving birth to James and to the end of her chemotherapy I loved it It was honest open and incredibly real – I could imagine the things Matilda said in her head you know the things you wouldn’t say out loud I appreciated her humour and openess in expressing her thoughts especially when she recounts her experience with people who mean well but could do betterI had a chance to email her about the book and I hope you enjoy reading the interview on my blog

    I had to pace myself with this book I found it uplifting and funny at times and totally honest and angry despairing at others A real emotional rollercoaster which was enhanced by the totally wonderful cartoon which accompanied the writing The one tiny complaint was I wanted of the 'after' what happened once treatment finished how did she feel?
