About this session
The Women in Rail South Book Club continues with our May book, Some Body To Love by Alexandra Heminsley.
‘Today I sat on a bench facing the sea, the one where I waited for L to be born, and sobbed my heart out. I don’t know if I’ll ever recover.’ Alexandra had just been told that her then-husband was going to transition. The revelation threatened to shatter their brand new, still fragile, family.
Some Body to Love is Alex’s profoundly open-hearted memoir about losing her husband but gaining a best friend, and together bringing up a baby in a changing world. It is an exploration of what it means to have a human body, to feel connected or severed from it, and how we might learn to accept our own, making it a vital and inspiring contribution to some of the most important conversations of our times.
The book club discussion will take place on Zoom and will be a reflection on the themes in the book and what we’ve learnt from them. Not only will we have a great discussion on the book of the month, there will be the opportunity to engage with others in the Women in Rail South community. It will also be a chance to give your suggestions for future books for us to read and share together.
