Kate Gross Book and Novel

Kate Gross - Author


In 36 years Kate Gross achieved more than most. Eventually though, the cancer which she fought so bravely took her on Christmas Day morning in 2014. She lived in Cambridge with her husband Billy and their twin sons Isaac and Oscar. Before her cancer, Kate read English at Oxford University. She joined the civil service and worked in Number 10 Downing Street for Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. On leaving, she set up the Africa Governance Initiative, a charity which works to rebuild structures of Government in post-conflict Africa. She was awarded an OBE in 2014 for her work. She blogged regularly - kateelizabethgross.wordpress.com - about her illness and the Last Post is from Kate's mother. Kate wrote there in more medical detail than she has done in her book - Late Fragments - which is almost entirely free of any medical jargon or writing on the nature of cancer. It is a book instead about life.
