We Are Gold

Alice Chambers

Hannah Gold, 23, dies in a car crash on a cold February morning. While her mother seeks relief in her daily poems, her father retreats into a state of suspended reality. Meanwhile, her brother seems intent on finding new and improved ways to lose his wife and job, while her sister's crash course experiment in love follows her home with a Spanish accent, and her little son has developed a fishy obsession with his auntie's letters! Alice Chambers' début novel is an achingly funny and profoundly moving examination of grief in which coping with death means living your life and moving forward means looking right beside you.
