Staying – A Memoir

Staying cover_final_TW

“As children, Jessie Cole and her brother Jake ran wild, free to roam their rainforest home as they pleased. They had each other, parents who adored them, and two mysterious, beautiful, clever half-sisters, Billie and Zoe, who came to visit every holidays. But when Jessie was on the cusp of adolescence, tragedy struck, and her happy, loving family fell apart.

This heartbreaking memoir asks what happens to those who are left behind when someone takes their own life. It’s about the importance of home, family and forgiveness—and finding peace in a place of pain.”

‘A wounded, lovely, luminous book about grief, trauma and the strange healing potential of words.’ Tim Winton

‘A work of shining brilliance.’ Romy Ash

‘Staying aches and pulses with life … Cole is a writer of immense talent.’ Anna Krien

Staying will be released in May 2018.

You can preorder a copy from Text Publishing.
