Love & Loss in the Time of Covid

Love & Loss in the Time of Covid

Author: Phil Dourado Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/08/2021

Overwhelmed by grief, Matthew takes to his bed until he is able to see a way to deal with the loss he’s experienced. Semi-autobiographical, ‘Love & Loss in the Time of Covid’ by Phil Dourado tells the story of a man who has lost his wife, brother and best friend all within a short space of time. Set in a time where the whole world seems to be grieving, whether it’s for the loss of a loved one or for the loss of normality as the COVID-19 pandemic hits, we see one man working through his emotions, one book at a time. With references to, and a title inspired by ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’, Dourado’s book explores in detail the multi-faced thing which is love as well as the many different forms that loss and grief can take. Although sad in places, there is a sense of hope running throughout the book, as Matthew confines himself to his bed until he has read every related book he can find on grief and many more besides, an act in itself that implies determination to make some form of progress or find a solution.  ‘Love & Loss in the Time of Covid’ is an honest, vulnerable and relatable tale. One that I think will resonate with a lot of people, because of lives changed by the pandemic or the loss of a loved one for any reason. A story of reflection, grief and ultimately hope, I think. Charlotte Walker, A LoveReading Ambassador

Hope the book does well. Guy Kawasaki, Garage.com. Author, Rules for Revolutionaries and The Art of The Start I was very impressed. I approached it as a cynic, thinking it was going to be one of those 'MBA in a day' things. But, I enjoyed it. It's very well put together. Steve Parks, CEO, The Red Group Well done on your refreshing approach to leadership. I recommended your book to a large conference yesterday. Keep going - this world needs people like you. David Taylor, Author, The Naked Leader The book is great. I'm really enjoying reading it; very informative, easy to read and a bit irreverent which I really like. I will recommend it to all my friends. It deserves a wide readership! Jon Harding, Senior HR Manager in charge of Leadership Development, Intercontinental Hotels Group
