Michael Rosen talks to Marianne Levy about his latest book, part memoir, part self-help about coping with trauma, illness and bereavement.
Getting Better: Stories of Trauma and Recovery is the landmark new memoir from National Treasure Michael Rosen. Following on from the Sunday Times bestselling Many Different Kinds of Love, Michael explores the role of trauma – from chronic illness to the loss of a child – and asks how we can learn to live again in the aftermath of tragedy. In our lives, terrible things may happen. Michael Rosen has grieved the loss of a child, lived with debilitating chronic illness, and faced death itself when seriously unwell in hospital. In spite of this he has survived, and has even learned to find joy.
In Getting Better, he shares his story and the lessons he has learned along the way. Exploring the roles that trauma and grief have played, Michael investigates the road to recovery, asking how we can find it within ourselves to live well again after - or even during - the darkest times of our lives.
Michael will be in conversation with Marianne Levy, author of Don't Forget to Scream: Unspoken Truths About Motherhood.
