Michelle Langstone on loss, grief and hope

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 11 May 2021

Come in, we have something we want to tell you. Nothing good ever comes from these words, and for  Michelle Langstone, they  prefaced the news that her beloved father had cancer.

The writer and actress best known for roles on Shortland Street, McLeod's Daughters, and The Almighty Johnsons, shares essays about life before and after her Dad's death, acting, fertility challenges and finding her footing again after unspeakable loss.

Her first book of essays is called  Times Like These: On grief, hope & remarkable love.
