Love, Death & Other Scenes [electronic resource] : A Memoir

Weetman, Nova2024
Nova Weetman’s unforgettable memoir reflects on experiences of love and loss from throughout her life, including losing her beloved partner, playwright Aidan Fennessy, during the 2020 Covid lockdown; the death of her mother ten years earlier; her daughter turning 18 and finishing school; and her own physical ageing. Using these events as a lens, Weetman considers how various kinds of losses – and the complicated love they represent – change us and can become the catalysts for letting go.This is a moving, honest account of farewelling a partner of 25 years, parenting teenagers through grief, buying property for the first time at the age of 50, watching Aidan live on through his plays and learning to appreciate spending hours alone with only the household cat for company. Warm and wise – and often joyful – Love, Death & Other Scenes ultimately focuses on the living we do after losses and what we learn from them.
