Sorrow and Bliss: the instant Sunday Times bestseller Kindle Edition
'I just adored this book. It's timely and dark and poignant and funny. It was filled with such eviscerating compassion and rage; I couldn't get enough of it. I inhaled it in a single weekend, unable to put it down. Meg Mason is a searing talent.' -- Kate Leaver, author of The Friendship Cure --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

As the title implies, this book keeps a fine balance between the tragic and the comic, sorrow and bliss. Profound, heartfelt without being saccharine, raw and punchy.
Read it in one go on the weekend, best weekend-read in a long time!
