Bright, tragic, candid and true, these poems are an exceptional chronicle of what it means to find the love of your life. And what it is like to have to say goodbye.
‘All I can do, in what remains of my brief time,
is mention, to whoever cares to listen,
that a woman once existed, who was kind
and beautiful and brave, and I will not forget
how the world was altered, beyond recognition,
when we met.’
“What will you do when your loved one is taken from you? In this heart-rending collection, Michel Faber addresses his grief for the loss of his wife with tenderness and lucidity. Recalling joys and moments of intimacy, he guides us through the vast terrain of illness he can cross only thanks to the memory of his beloved. Every poem, every word, is a stepping stone to salvation and a proof of undying love.”
