Undying A Love Story

by Michel Faber


Undying A Love Story Synopsis

A heartbreaking chronicle of losing the love of your life by Michel Faber, the award-winning author of The Book of Strange New Things. All I can do, in what remains of my brief time, is mention, to whoever cares to listen, that a woman once existed, who was kind and beautiful and brave, and I will not forget how the world was altered, beyond recognition, when we met.

Undying A Love Story Press Reviews

'Searing yet beautiful' -- Richard Holloway

'Heart-breaking. I'm delighted to have such a beautiful book' -- Mary Costello

'I was touched by the spirit of these poems, their vulnerably sober and steady way of addressing grief' -- Christopher Reid
