Even though poor Emma [Rosen’s wife] kept explaining it to me over and over again, I still hadn’t fully copped that I had been one of those people you see on the telly, lying inert with tubes coming out of them.

Sometimes the novels chosen are new, often they are from the backlist and occasionally re-issued from way back. We would now think that it’s not a great idea – the general consensus seems to be, ‘OK, you don’t have to let it all hang out, but you can say it, you can talk about it. The book stands as a poignant and insightful testament to resilience, offering itself as an indispensable companion for those who have loved and lost or wrestled with life's hardships and emerged victorious.It doesn’t seem to matter if he’s writing children’s fiction, adult fiction or non-fiction, the words seamlessly jump off the page and into your heart.

Windows users should also consider upgrading to Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, or switching to Firefox or Chrome.Getting Better: Stories of Trauma and Recovery is the landmark new memoir from National Treasure Michael Rosen. I enjoy listening to Michael on the radio and was upset and concerned when he was so ill in the pandemic. Exploring the roles that trauma and grief have played, Michael investigates the road to recovery, asking how we can find it within ourselves to live well again after - or even during - the darkest times of our lives. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, unique tales inspired by traditional literary forms appeared frequently in socialist-leaning British periodicals, such as the Clarion, Labour Leader, and Social Democrat. In this wide-ranging collection, dramatisations and readings of some of his major works are brought together, exploring themes such as romantic love and sexual desire, individual freedom, class division, war, the beauty of nature and the ugliness of industrialisation.

Rosen often takes to Twitter (now X) to spar with anti-vaxxers and Covid deniers, he feels it a duty, he says.Through a mixture of reminiscences and lessons, he also shows us “getting better” as running, as taking pills, as self-improvement, as something you cannot do on your own, as joy; and even as stuffing difficult feelings into a box when necessary.
