Don't Kill the Birthday Girl - New Memoir from Sandra Beasley - Available as a hardcover and eBook - July 2011
Sandra Beasley has had severe allergies to certain foods her entire life. When butter is deadly and eggs can make your throat swell shut, cupcakes and other joys of childhood are out of the question—and so Sandra's mother used to warn guests against a toxic, frosting-tinged kiss with "Don't kill the birthday girl!"
From her short-lived gig as a restaurant reviewer, to the dates that ended with trips to the emergency room—Sandra Beasley, an award-winning poet and former American Scholar editor— shares her captivating memoir about growing up and coming to terms with a potentially deadly disorder.
