Happy Old Me (Hardcover)
On 8 February 2016, Margaret Forster lost her life to cancer of the spine. For her husband, Hunter Davies, the days that followed were carried out on autopilot: arrangements to be made, family and friends to be contacted. But how do you cope after you have lost your loved one? As Hunter discovers what it means to be alone again after fifty-five years of marriage, he shares the wisdom and lessons he has learnt along the way. Charting his emotional journey, as well as the often ignored practical implications of becoming widowed, Hunter discovers that, ultimately, while bricks and mortar may change, the memories will always remain. Part memoir, part self-help, HAPPY OLD ME is the account of one year in Hunter Davies' life, navigating bereavement and finding hope in the future.
