Actor, comedian and author Robert Webb joins Good Grief to talk about his Sunday Times bestselling memoir, How Not To Be a Boy, and his first novel, Come Again, described by the Guardian as ‘well paced, nicely written and highly entertaining’. In this interview with Milly Chowles, Robert will also share his personal experience of losing a parent.
In Robert’s novel, Come Again, Kate’s husband Luke dies suddenly, after which her life falls apart. Kate wakes one day to find herself back on the day she first met Luke, though she knows how he died and that he’s actually already ill. If she can make them fall in love again, might she be able to save him?
