A brilliantly warm; witty and moving portrait of our pandemic lives; told in ten heart-rending short stories

Love and marriage. Children and family. Death and grief. Life touches everyone the same. But living under lockdown; it changes us alone.

In these ten; beautifully moving short stories mostly written over the last year; Booker Prize winner Roddy Doyle paints a collective portrait of our strange times. A man abroad wanders the stag-and-hen-strewn streets of Newcastle; as news of the virus at home asks him to question his next move. An exhausted nurse struggles to let go; having lost a much-loved patient in isolation. A middle-aged son; barred from his mother's funeral; wakes to an oncoming hangover of regret.

Told with Doyle's signature warmth; wit and extraordinary eye for the richness that underpins the quiet of our lives; Life Without Children cuts to the heart of how we are all navigating loss; loneliness; and the shifting of history underneath our feet.
