What will I wear to your funeral? Kellie Curtain

Kellie wanted to ask her mother so many questions while she still could. When you don’t go a day without speaking to someone you love, how do you say goodbye forever? It didn’t bear thinking about. When Pamela Curtain is diagnosed with cancer, her family plead with her to try everything that might give them all more time. She reluctantly agrees, but on one condition. Life goes on because it has to and so does the weekly family dinner with wine and loud sibling banter. With grace, guts and cups of tea the matriarch prepares herself and those she loves for the inevitable. This is a toast to love, friendship and the ordinary. There is no happy ending but the Curtain family discovers that there can be ‘good’ in goodbye. And it somehow leaves them feeling just a little victorious.
