How do we become more after losing? Beloved Australian author Nova Weetman shares her heartfelt experiences with grief and loss while also celebrating the profound beauty of love and life.

Nova Weetman's unforgettable memoir reflects on experiences of love and loss from throughout her life- losing her beloved partner, playwright Aidan Fennessy, during the 2020 Covid lockdown; the death of her mother ten years earlier; her daughter turning eighteen and finishing school; and her own physical ageing. Using these events as a lens, Nova considers how various kinds of losses - and the complicated love they represent - change us and can become the catalysts for letting go.

This is a moving, honest account of farewelling a partner of twenty-five years, parenting teenagers through grief, buying property for the first time at the age of fifty, and learning to appreciate spending hours alone with only the household cat for company. Warm and wise - and often joyful - Love, Death & Other Scenes ultimately focuses on the living we do after losses and what we learn from them.
