The new bestselling memoir from the beloved Michael Harding.
In late 2018 Michael Harding phones an ambulance from a hotel room in Blanchardstown and is admitted to hospital where he is told that he is experiencing a heart attack. As he looks back on the months before and after he became ill, he examines, once again, with humour and insight, the themes of faith, death and the human condition.
Searingly honest, funny, self-deprecating, Harding's narrative seems to rest on the pulse of Ireland - Irish Times on On Tuesdays I'm a Buddhist
A compelling memoir. Absorbing and graced with a deceptive lightness of touch ... Harding writes like an angel - Sunday Times on Hanging with the Elephant
Hilarious, and tender, and mad, and harrowing, and wistful, and always beautifully written. A wonderful book - Kevin Barry on Staring at Lakes
Wonderful ... Like many people who have achieved a great deal, [Harding] cannot recognise his triumphs. This book, like its predecessor, is one of them - John Boyne on Hanging with the Elephant
A book that champions the kindness (or at least company of) strangers as essential for that elusive state known as happiness - RTE Guide on Talking to Strangers
