What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"He has written a courageous and valuable book – one that both throws light into some hitherto curtained corners and honours the life they had together." John Preston, Daily Mail"The story of a blissful marriage, cross-cut with a raw commentary on the progress of his wife's disease… It's the exhausted voice of carers everywhere – exasperation, loss, fear, frustrated love." Elizabeth Grice, Daily Telegraph"What is likeable about the memoir is Suchet's lack of a stiff upper lip. He writes about love in the tone of a schoolboy, trying to make sense of an overwhelming crush…the memoir is an act of loving resistance." Kate Kellaway, The Observer"Heartfelt, vivid and true" Sunday Times Culture“The writing is honest and the emotions he has been put through over the last four or five years are ones which many carers will recognise in themselves. However, it is not all gloom, and he intersperses his account with the story of how he fell in love with his wife…if you were to look at the photographs in the book, you might think his life with Bonnie has been one long party.” The Spectator
