The Breakup Monologues with Rosie Wilby

Sep 9, 2022

In a live episode recorded in Einstein’s Garden at Green Man Festival, Rosie shares a chapter from The Breakup Monologues book and chats to author Kat Lister and comedian Meryl O’Rourke about untangling the differences and similarities between a breakup and a bereavement, how time feels elastic when we experience grief, how humour can help us after loss, the fetishisation of young widows, how and when to start dating again and reclaim your sexuality after a bereavement, how the physicality of sex can sometimes help in times of grief… and finding out that the person who you thought had ghosted you was actually deported for stealing body parts. Recorded at Green Man Festival on 21 August 2022.
