NEW STATESMAN, THE TIMES AND EXPRESS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2023‘Full of sense, heart and hope . . . the friend you need when you’re grieving’ PHILIPPA PERRY‘This book is a game-changer. Read it before you need to’ DR KATHRYN MANNIX‘It’s honest and warm and funny (in all the right places)’ JULIA SAMUELWhen Cariad Lloyd was just fifteen, she became the person-whose-dad-had-died; a mess of emotions and questions. She turned to the Five Stages of Grief model for guidance, but found its framework of loss was hard to reconcile with her messy and non-linear experience of grief.

In this wise and witty book, Cariad shares her grief road map – a collection of years of profound insights from experts and guests featured on her podcast, Griefcast – to remind us that you cannot do grief wrong. The flexibility of the map acknowledges that no two experiences of grief are the same and assists us in building a life around our grief.

So, welcome to the club. We know you didn’t ask to be here. But you will be okay. Because you are not alone.

‘A blackly funny, honest, thought-provoking and compassionate book’ THE TIMES ‘Feels like a warm bath . . . Lloyd’s chatty writing style is familiar and funny’ NEW STATESMAN ‘A moving and funny meditation on loss’ OBSERVER
