The Elements : A Widowhood, Hardback Book

The Elements : A Widowhood Hardback

Hardback

Description

'Powerful, humane and deeply affecting, Lister's wise and truthful writing makes this essential reading for anyone touched, and utterly confused, by grief.' Sali Hughes'The must-read memoir' RedWhat does it mean to become a widow at 35?In her mid-thirties Kat Lister lost her husband to brain cancer.

After five years of being a wife and one of being a carer, in love and in and out of hospitals, she became a widow. In the year following his death Kat seeks refuge in stories of grief and widowhood, but struggles to find a language that can make sense of her experience and the physicality of bereavement.

Instead, she turns to the elements - fire, water, earth, air - on her quest to come to terms with her grief, to inhabit her body again, and to find out who she is now. The Elements is a story of love, pain, hope and, ultimately, transformation.
