Summary
An immersive moving novel about complex grief: a woman attempts to rebuild her life after her boyfriend leaves her for another women then dies hours later. In the months after the death of her long-term boyfriend Mauro, Paula Cid - a neonatalist working in a Barcelona hospital - has become caught in a strange limbo of mourning. Only her closest friends know that hours before he was killed in a car accident Mauro had told her that he was leaving her for another woman. Navigating the unsettled nature of her grief, obsessing over Mauro's infidelity and pursuing fraught affairs with a new colleague and a charismatic stranger, she struggles to make sense of her world anew. Told in immersive, lucid prose, Learning to Talk to Plants is a moving and tender exploration of the emotional kaleidoscope of grief, and of the awkward, unpredictable process of rebuilding a shattered life
