You Are Not Alone (Hardback)Cariad Lloyd (author)
The comedian and host of the Griefcast podcast reflects on her father's passing when she was fifteen and discusses the process of grieving and society's changing attitudes to death in this powerful, inspiring and frequently funny volume.
Inspired by her award-winning podcast, Griefcast, You Are Not Alone is Cariad Lloyd's frank, funny and compassionate exploration of grief.
When Cariad Lloyd lost her father at the age of fifteen, people didn't talk about death. Years later, when she created Griefcast, it started a conversation that people didn't realise they needed until it was there, about one of the most significant events in a person's life: its end.
In You Are Not Alone, Cariad shares all that she has learned from Griefcast. She reflects on her own grief, the grief of others, and the psychology and science behind how our society deals with death and loss. Funeral thoughts, therapy, coping with anniversaries, bad friends, good friends, birthdays, weddings, missing them, not missing them - this is grief in all its sad, surprising, awkward, tender and sometimes funny forms.
You Are Not Alone is a road map for all of us: for anybody who has ever felt lost in grief, who would like to help someone they know through theirs, or who just wants to understand life a little better.

'This book is a game-changer, a grief companion for our time... practical, kind, honest, generous. Read it before you need to. You can thank me later' - Dr Kathryn Mannix
'We do not talk enough about grief. Often, it is a lonely path. Cariad Lloyd has made it her life's work to make us feel less alone, like we belong to a club, like our grief is both collective and individual, that there is no right way to remember those no longer with us, and that there is great comfort in talking about grief and death. Told with humanity, humour and honesty, this is a book for all of us, because we will all experience grief at some point in our lives, and this book will make us feel less alone' - Dr Nikesh Shukla
'Stunning... this is a necessary book for all of us, those new to grief, the old hands, or the simply curious to understand. Even though it is about death, it's a guide book to life' - Aisling Bea
'It is the secret desire of many artists to make themselves useful and Cariad has achieved just that. A wise, warm and important book' - Robert Webb
'A pick-and-mix of insight into loss, filled with wit, warmth and wisdom' - Alan Davies

Honestly, this book hit the nail on the coffin about how grief can affect more areas of your life than just the absence of the person. Cariad has a very easy and personable way of talking, making the matter of such a... More
“The book equivalent of tea & cake, a hug and a chat with a friend”
I’ve been so excited for this book. I’m not a big podcast person but Griefcast really helped me in my time of need. I’ve been really excited to read Cariad’s thoughts on grief since this book was announced.
I'm not sure what I expected from this book when I pre-ordered it. My wife had died within the last six months and I thought that it might be of some help to me in getting through the period of grief.
