Product description


'Rarely has a book touched me the way that How to Be Brave has. Louise Beech has written a debut novel that will live long in this reviewer's memory and for those who have read it, for those who are going to read this and I urge you to do just that, your heart will be taken by the sheer natural brilliance of the writing' --Last Word Reviews

'I became absolutely hooked on Colin's story, and just like Rose who counted the minutes to storytime, I sped through the outer narrative just to get to tale of the lost man at sea. Alongside Natalie and Rose the reader learns the true power of storytelling. It is a brilliantly creative work of fiction, and a beautiful thank you letter to the magic of stories and storytelling.' --We Love This Book

'Given that Louise Beech has based her debut on her grandfather's diaries and it is grounded in fact, following her own child's illness, I think her grandfather would be immensely proud of what she's achieved in creating a book that will stay with readers, and listeners, for a very long time' --Linda's Book Bag

Her short fiction has won the Glass Woman Prize, the Eric Hoffer Award for Prose, and the Aesthetica Creative competition, as well as shortlisting for the Bridport Prize twice. Louise is currently writing her next book. She lives with her husband and children on the outskirts of Hull – the UK’s 2017 City of Culture – and loves her job as Front of House Usher at Hull Truck Theatre, where her first play was performed in 2012.
