Please, Don’t Send Me Flowers: A Memoir
From the Back Cover
From divorce, to coming out, to cancer, Lianne Saffer tells an honest and hilarious account of her last 15 years. In it, she describes the often-painful discovery of her own resilience and the process of learning to trust herself along the way. Lianne’s engaging storytelling weaves in the themes of small-town religious family upbringing, redefining modern femininity, and navigating life’s complexities. Despite the heavy topics, her fierce reflections and lessons are grounded in vulnerability and the perfect dose of humor. Lianne’s story has you altering between laughing and crying, and it’s a must-read for anyone who has ever considered sending someone flowers.

A Note from the Author
I wrote Please, Don’t Send Me Flowers in hopes of opening up conversation around challenges in relationships, sexuality, religion, and cancer. I wrote it to help people feel validated, seen, challenged, and heard. I wrote it because I knew nothing about what these situations really felt like until they happened to me, despite knowing that they were happening all around me. Still, nobody was talking about them. I wrote it because I needed the world to see humor and joy within dark moments. I wrote it because I wish I had read it years ago. I wrote it in hopes that somewhere within its pages, people will see a glimpse of themselves and feel less alone and less afraid, and maybe crack a smile.
