When Freddy was 21 years old, his dad, a larger-than-life, successful TV producer, was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a particularly aggressive type of brain cancer.

In vivid snapshots, Freddy recalls the ups and downs of an impossible time – from the entertaining antics of a wine-gum tossing competition in a hospital ward, to the comi-tragedy of trying to decipher his father’s muddled riddles as his speech disintegrates, to painful moments of regret and self-loathing as he squanders precious time.

Don’t Put Yourself on Toast is a bittersweet coming-of-age memoir which shows how the power of humour and laughter can provide, even in our darkest moments, sustenance, comfort and hope.
