What would life be like if you could recall every detail of your entire life?

Casey has hyperthymesia, a rare condition which means that she has perfect recollection of her past, a burden which imprisons her in her memories. There is no joy in the present, no thought of the future; only the inescapable past playing constantly in her mind.

Then one day she meets Joe, a man without a past. Or is he?

Together they find a present, which has the potential to save them both but also forces them to confront a future that challenges their love of life and each other.

Degrees of Losing is a story about love and loss, memory and time, and what it means to be somebody.

Rosie Waterland, Senior Editor at reviewed the book:
"It's frustratingly rare these days to find a female character who is complex and flawed, yet undeniably likable. Degrees of Losing has that in Casey, who Shan Purcell has managed to bring to life with dry humour and often brutal honesty. This is the kind of book you won't be able to put down."
