'Absolutely bloody heartrending. Hannah's eccentric style is never mawkish and often wonderfully funny' - THE TIMES
'Hannah writes with emotional acuity. Warm, wry, thoughtful and devastating in places, this is a life-enhancing missive from death's door' - THE SUNDAY TIMES
A striking literary debut of love and mortality perfect for fans of quirky, heart-wrenching fiction like Nathan Filer, David Nicholls and Rachel Joyce.
Ivo has all kinds of everyday joy in his life – he’s young, he's in love, he has friends who promise to stand by him if life ever goes wrong.Then one day, life does go wrong. He makes a mistake, and it’s big and unforgiveable. Now time is
running out and his life is falling apart. But he’s going to put it
together again. His own way.
This is a story about how far love must stretch to gather a life in pieces. And how strong friendship never dies.
