How stand-up comedian Stevie D. faced his prostate cancer diagnosis

  Comedian and author Steven Dupin, better known as Stevie D, was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 44. The self-described "?hillbilly hellraiser"? from Owensboro, Kentucky was scared, and decided the only way he was going to survive was to keep his sense of humor. So he wrote a book about his experience, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. He was in town this month for Books by the Banks, and stopped in to talk with Mark Heyne about his fight with prostate cancer, and his book, The Trans Am Diaries: A Hillbilly's Road Trip from Stand Up Comedy to Cancer...and Back Again.
