Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, has to be one of the best titles for a book, ever. Gail Honeyman’s debut was discovered through a writing competition and sold for huge sums worldwide when the author was in her 40s. Like the Eleanor of Eleanor Rigby fame, her anti-hero suffers profound loneliness. At work all week, with pizza and vodka at the weekend and not a soul to talk to, Eleanor’s tale has been dubbed not a coming of age novel, but a coming to life one. Hailed a complete joy, sometimes hilarious, with an overwhelming emotion: kindness – and the message that it’s never too late, for any of us.

“An uncommonly intelligent and sympathetic novel
The Scotsman

Cathy Rentzenbrink experienced loss after the death of her brother, resulting in her latest book, A Manual for Heartache. Her boundless warmth and compassion show us how to look for hope and joy amidst the heartache of being human. These two authors promise tears of joy and humour in an uplifting conversation that promises to be the equivalent of a big hug.

Cathy and Gail will be interviewed by Mark Lawson. Journalist, broadcaster and author.
