Synopsis

'The most life-affirming book ever written about death.' Sandi Toksvig

'One of the most powerful and helpful books about grief that you will ever read.' Anita Anand





'Grief is more than the price of love. It is love. We must learn not just to live with it, but to make it welcome.'









Catherine Mayer and her mother Anne Mayer Bird were widowed at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is their story of supporting each other through whirling grief, 'sadmin' and the darkest of times, as they learn to embrace life again.





Now updated with brand new chapters, Good Grief is an essential companion for loss and a testimony to enduring love. Spiked with wry humour, it is an uplifting, moving and unexpectedly joyous read.





'Smart, upbeat and brimming with fortitude' Observer





'One of the saddest things I've ever read but also the most powerful. It's made me want to cling tight to the people I love while acknowledging their mortality and mine too.' Marian Keyes
