In this moving memoir Tom Inglis recounts the life and the love he shared with his wife, Aileen, who died from breast cancer in 2005.
Relentlessly honest about his feelings and his failings as a husband and a lover, and touching on everything from jealousy to the loss of his child, Inglis provides a compellingly written and raw portrait of a man struggling to comprehend love, death and the complexities of living.
Tom Inglis was born and raised in Dublin. He and Aileen met as teenagers and developed a lifelong love. They married and had three children, Arron, Olwen and Luke (who died tragically at nine months). Tom is Associate Professor of Sociology in UCD and lives in Dublin.
‘a beautiful love letter to his wife, as he tells the world about how they lived and loved.‘ – The Sunday Independent
