A Dead Polar Bear on a Sledge

Autumn 2020

Jennifer Grey is a 40-year-old urban refugee, ‘living in a village by mistake’. When her husband Chris leaves her for Romily ‘from the Big House’, Jen has to drag her broken heart around 'like a dead polar bear on a sledge', finding love in all the wrong places. She tells her story with honesty, insight and most self-deprecating humour.
