How to Lose Everything is a memoir that connects sorrow, despair, reprieve, and hard-won hope, a frank revealing of the emotional and psychological experiences of motherhood, partnership, and change. Through her son’s heart transplant, his death, his brother’s single day of life, the amputation of her leg as a cure for bone cancer, abortion, divorce, and a move across the country to start over after it all, Christa Couture has come to know every corner of grief — its shifting blurry edges, its traps, its pulse of love at the centre, and its bittersweet truth that resilience is borne of suffering.”
