Recommended by Heywood Hill Reader Juliet Nicolson:
"I do not remember encountering such resilience as that shown by Decca Aikenhead in her heart-wrenching memoir. The beauty and power of both language and of thought makes me urge everyone I know to read this book and understand something life-altering about loss, grief, love, and survival".
