Summary "In July 2012 Thomas Harding's fourteen-year-old son Kadian was killed in a bicycle accident. Shortly afterwards Thomas began to write. This book is the result. Beginning on the day of Kadian's death, and continuing to the one-year anniversary, and beyond, Kadian Journal is a record of grief, and of a mind in shock and questioning a strange new reality. Interspersed within the journal are fragments of memory: jewel-bright everyday moments that slowly combine to form a biography of a father's relationship with his son. Kadian Journal is a document of startling bravery and candor--a description of a family dislocated and united by tragedy, and a beautiful and moving tribute to a son"-- Provided by publisher.
