[Content warning: Sensitive themes including suicide]

Two fascinating non-fiction works explore our relationship to life, our bodies and mortality itself. In Bedtime Story, Chloe Hooper looks to classics by the likes of Brothers Grimm and JRR Tolkien to teach her own children about grief and resilience after her partner falls seriously ill. In her essay collection The First Time I Thought I Was Dying, Sarah Walker examines our unruly bodies and asks how we might learn to embrace our chaos. They share the stage with interviewer Anton Enus.
