Hilma Wolitzer

Season 8, Ep. 158

This week Cariad talks to writer Hilma Wolitzer (Today A Woman Went Mad In The Supermarket) about her husband, Morty, who died from Covid at the start of the pandemic in 2020. Hilma also suffered from Covid herself, but survived and at ninety-one was inspired to write again after Morty's death. As ever we talk grief, the kindness of doctors + finding pyjamas.

You can follow Hilma on twitter @HilmaWolitzer and her book is available to buy now,
