FBF: Natasha Walter with Cathy Rentzenbrink: Beyond Grief

Celebrated  feminist and human rights activist Natasha Walter will be interviewed by Sunday Times bestselling writer Cathy Rentzenbrink about her new memoir that explores her family history in order to make sense of her mother's death.

One day in December, Natasha Walter's mother Ruth took her own life. At first, the grief and guilt that Natasha felt were overwhelming. As the author of feminist books and the founder of the charity Women for Refugee Women, Natasha had always been active in social justice. But in the aftermath of her mother's suicide, her personal grief intertwined with a sense of political despair.

This is a memoir that is honest about loss, but also searches for what is valuable in the legacy of one family that lived through some of the great crises of the twentieth century. It will resonate with those grappling with the loss of hope in these challenging political times, as well as those who are living in the shadow of bereavement.
