When My World Was Very Small on the magazine's "10 best books for the Can Lit fan in your holiday gift list"

"Ruth Rakoff, a Toronto mother of three, has penned a one-of-a-kind breast cancer memoir that is candid, witty and warm. Nothing is sugarcoated, except perhaps the desserts she treats herself to."

Ruth is one of 35 amazing Canadian women celebrated in the December issue of the magazine.

"Ruth Rakoff put an irreverant spin on breast cancer recovery this year with her book When My World Was Very Small: A Memoir of Family, Food, Cancer and My Couch (Random House Canada, 2010), in which she shares tidbits like: chemotherapy is part of the cure – as is a good bottle of Merlot."
