Richard Holloway returns to The Edinburgh Bookshop to discuss his latest book, The Heart of Things: An Anthology of Memory & Lament.
About the Book:
A moving and personal anthology from the Sunday Times bestselling author and one of our most beloved public thinkers, encompassing melancholy, morality, mortality and more. Throughout his life Richard Holloway has turned to poets and writers to help answer the big questions, and for solace and guidance in the face of life’s challenges. Now in The Heart of Things he shares those poems and words which have been his own guide, offered in the hope they will help us too.
As Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church Richard put principle over Church policy to advocate for gay rights and women in the priesthood. He never shied away from confronting his own doubts and fears, whether questioning his own faith, or facing the inevitability of death. Across numerous bestselling books he has been a radical voice of compassion and realism, helping us navigate the hectic modern world.
‘Reading Holloway is like taking a long walk in the countryside – afterwards, you understand the world better, you feel less lonely’ ELIF SHAFAK
