Half Woman Half Grief
Maya Kalaria, author
I’m not here to sugar-coat grief. I’m here to be transformed by it. This powerfully vulnerable book invites us to grieve. Having lost her mother at the age of nine, Maya has spent her life navigating her way through the myriad of emotions which surround death. In her debut collection of poetry, she maps her journey into the mysterious underworld of grief and the extraordinary lessons she learned in the darkness. Maya is a woman of colour, a poet, a writer, and has helped to support people’s mental wellbeing as an engagement worker and hypnotherapist. She has also spoken on the radio about grief, identity and bullying.
