June Pepper finds there is more to life than death in this touching, sensitive and funny exploration of bereavement from the creator of Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell and Billy Liar.

Returning from the memorial service for her husband, a tough tabloid editor cut down in his prime, June Pepper sets about following his instructions to keep a journal as therapy. But both grief and the journal prove elusive. Distracted by a problem stepdaughter and by a liaison with a man she discovers wearing one of her husband's old suits, June finds bereavement far from straightforward. And as she empties skeletons from closets, she learns there is far more to life than death.
