Reviews

This feels like an important book, and it shows that a beautiful book can be written in clear, plain style - there is beauty enough in its subject. * The Guardian * A searingly honest and extremely moving book about Jo Cox, which gives us all a chance to get to know the woman behind the headlines and the shocking way she died. Jo comes across as a tiny ball of energy with a heart as big as a lion, a person who wanted to make a difference. * Lorraine Kelly, Sun * The story of Jo's life runs through the book: her childhood growing up in West Yorkshire; winning a place at Cambridge; working for Oxfam where she met Brendan; winning the seat for Labour in 2015 in her childhood constituency which fulfilled a lifelong dream... Jo comes across as a thoroughly decent person who was on a mission to change what she saw as an unjust world... And it is all utterly heart-breaking because you know as you read the book that all of this happiness, drive and energy is going to come to a sudden, needless and irrevocable end... This is not an easy read. It is overwhelmingly sad at times and the chapters that deal with the immediate aftermath of Jo's death, where Brendan wrestles with how to tell his children what has happened, are almost unbearable... While Jo Cox: More In Common is raw, painful and shot through with grief, it is also brave, inspiring and full of love. -- https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/books/825970/Jo-Cox-More-In-Common-book-review-by-Brendan-Cox * Daily Express * Will remain seared in my memory for as long as I live... A startlingly intimate and moving journey... I drew strength, gratitude and inspiration from Brendan's account. * Stephen Kinnock, Daily Mail *
