Bittersweet is a book about living with an inoperable, incurable brain tumour. Comic artist Gordon Shaw imagines heated conversation with his tumour, Rick, in this funny and moving autobiographical work. Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, Bittersweet is a vibrant and important piece of comic literature.
Look out for Long Live My Happy Head, a documentary following Gordon's story by Bafta-winning Edinburgh filmmakers Melt The Fly, which was broadcast on BBC Scotland in March 2022, and is now available on the BBC iPlayer
