or almost fifty years Michael Harding has been crafting words in a bid to express himself and explore truths about the human condition. But even still he found himself unable to say certain things he really wanted to.

Then, while in recovery from surgery, he travelled to a cottage on the Atlantic coast and thought again about life and the people who had profoundly affected him; mentors, lovers and old friends.

There at the ocean he wrote letters, with an intimacy not previously risked. Letters that were never posted, but that appear now in this book – a vulnerable and beautifully wrought collection of insights into life, death, friendship and love.

Recovering from surgery, Michael Harding travelled to the coast of Donegal to heal in solitude, with the comfort of the ocean around him. As he recuperated, he set himself the task of writing letters to people who had a profound effect on him through his life: old loves, mentors, friends.

The result is a collection of insights into life, death, friendship and love. These letters, expressing an intimacy not previously risked, were never posted.

All the Things Left Unsaid is the startlingly honest and moving witness to the power of connection and the importance of saying the things you need to say, before it’s too late
