Naomi by Patrick Livesey

"Astonishing, raw and gut-wrenching. A triumph." - The Advertiser

In 2015, Patrick's mum took her own life. Drawn from interviews conducted with friends & family, Livesey portrays eight different characters each with an insight into Naomi's life, each grappling with the weight of grief, regret and love.
