Read All About It


Cathy Rentzenbrink, writer

Season 1, Ep. 54

Cathy Rentzenbrink is the author of The Last Act of Love and A Manual for Heartache and most recently Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books, which is published by Picador and came out in September 2020.

She speaks and writes regularly on life, death, love, literature, literacy and mental health, and is often to be found doing bookish events at festivals, in shops and libraries, and in prisons. In previous lives Cathy worked for The Bookseller, The Reading Agency, Quick Reads, Waterstones and The Bell & Crown Inn.

Despite her books being shortlisted for various prizes, the only thing Cathy has ever won is the Snaith and District Ladies Darts Championship when she was 17. She is now sadly out of practice.
