The Weight of Him, Paperback / softback Book


How do you carry on, when you lose someone you love?

Big Billy Brennan's family is reeling from loss, his marriage is a partnership in name alone, and eating is the only thing getting him through.

In his close-knit town, Billy can't escape his notoriety.

But when Billy decides to take on the two things weighing him down - his grief, and his fat - he takes on much more than just a personal attempt at recovery... The Weight of Him is an unforgettable, big-hearted novel about loss and redemption, and what can be achieved when an everyday hero finds the courage to try to better his world.
