Epilogue is so very good. Each tiny piece of this story is so sweet and heartbreaking I couldn't stop reading it. It's brilliant. It will make you cry. I have never met Will Boast, but I'm so proud of him
Nina Stibbe, author, Love, Nina
Riveting, soulful, and courageously told, Will Boast's memoir is a gorgeous meditation on grief and family and also a deeply personal account of his coming-of-age under a relentless bombardment of tragedies and revelations. Never has a story of loss been so full of life
Maggie Shipstead, author, Seating Arrangements

From the Same Author
Daphne suffers from a rare medical condition; her body shuts down when she feels strong emotions. As a result she has built strong walls between herself and the world, avoiding passion, anger, disappointment and surprise. But when she meets Ollie, who seems to see through her armour, who seems to want to know the real Daphne, her carefully built defences begin to crumble.
In this gripping and tender modern myth, Will Boast explores the unexamined assumptions we make about our bodies and our relationships through the prism of a soulful contemporary love story.
