Actor, comedian, and writer Rob Delaney presents his intimate, raw, and fiercely funny memoir on transplanting his family to London while filming the hit series Catastrophe, caring for his son who had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and the sorrow that followed his son’s death. In this exquisite exploration, Delaney grapples with the fragile miracle of life, the mysteries of death, and the question of purpose for those left behind. In conversation with Seth Meyers (Late Night with Seth Meyers).
