A woman who spent three months in a coma with a brain illness is celebrating the publication of the debut novel she had forgotten that she was writing. Alexandra Singer, 29, suffered long-term memory loss after an attack of cerebral lupus in 2008. While in hospital, her brother, Joshua, found the notes to the novel, Tea at the Grand Tazi.
