Tania Katan’s 2006 memoir, My One-Night Stand With Cancer, an amazingly sharp and humorous account of her fight with breast cancer, received a number of awards including
the prestigious Judy Grahn Award for Nonfiction from the Publishing Triangle. More recently, Katan has performed
her one-woman show Saving Tania’s Privates, based on her memoir, at a number of high profile venues such as the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Katan says she sees performing as a chance for a bigger conversation with her audience, “While writing My One Night Stand with Cancer, I felt like I was
having coffee with a good friend, talking about the boobs we’ve dated and the boobs we’ve lost; the book was my half of a dialogue. Now, through performing Saving Tania’s Privates,
I have the luxury of an energetic exchange, of hearing and
feeling the other half of this dialogue from the audience.” -CB
