Tell Me Good Things: On Love, Death and Marriage

Pre-Order   Ships 24 November 2022

Description

James Runcie's wife Marilyn Imrie died in August 2020. Their thirty-five year marriage had been miraculously happy - until, in the last two years of Marilyn's life, she descended into the pain, humiliation and frustration of motor neurone disease.

In the wake of her death, Runcie stumbled in the dark. How do you make sense of the decline and death of the most alive person you have ever met? And how do you go about building a life worth living in their absence?

In Tell Me Good Things , Runcie tells the story of Marilyn's illness and death - in all its moments of tragedy, rage, farce and surrealness - while painting a vivid portrait of her life and their marriage: a partnership defined by a shared love of beauty, conviviality and storytelling. And during that first year of loss, he awakens to the strange paradox of grief: that the way to survive Marilyn's death is to understand how very good she was at living.

Tender, funny, profound and deeply true, Tell Me Good Things is an unforgettable story of life before death - and love beyond the grave.
