By the time she was forty-three years old, Emily Dean’s eccentric and extraordinary family had all died including her sister who was the centre of her world. In her search to emerge from grief Emily finally got a puppy – an adorable Shih-Tzu called Ray. This is a funny, heartbreaking story of love, loss and starting again. Ray will of course be with her! Emily Dean is a presenter and journalist and is Frank Skinner’s co-host on Absolute Radio.
