Summary Mary Delahunty is a celebrity journalist elected to Parliament, sparkling in the breathless publicity of an ALP 'star recruit'. The fairy dust fades though when her soul mate, husband and father of their two children is struck down with a rampant cancer. This is a meditation on how a public figure copes, or fails to cope, with private grief, and is an honest, compelling account of how a minister and mother loses her mate and almost loses her mind
