An original slant on the issues of grief and survival. Unusual, painful and intelligent writing
Transmut[es] humour into savage irony and back again...An honourable, humane and touching work
Both compelling and jarring...the author treads the line between poignancy and sentimentality, bitterness and joy, memoir and fiction
'Moving...packed with emotion... you will cry, yes, but you will also laugh as this novel reminds us of the overwhelming capacity we have for the most powerful love'
This is one of the most emotionally powerful books I've ever read. The deep sadness is layered with hope; showing how friends and family can help each other through grief. It is a roller-coaster of emotion... Highly recommended
