My Year of Living Vulnerably is a thought-provoking, honest and tender audiobook about Morton’s journey to rediscover love and towards betterness following his diagnosis.

In early 2019, Rick Morton, author of the critically acclaimed and bestselling memoir One Hundred Years of Dirt, was diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder – which, as he says, is just a fancy way of saying that one of the people who should have loved him the most during childhood didn't. So Rick decided it was time to rediscover love. To get better. Not cured, not fixed. Just ... better. This is a book about his journey to betterness, his experiment in living vulnerably. In fact, it’s a book about love. What love is, what forms it takes, how we practise it in our lives, what it means to us, and how we really, really can't live without it, even if, like Rick for many years, we think we can. As he says: ‘People think they want cars, and they do, to get to jobs and appointments in cities and regions where public transport has failed them. But what gets them into those cars, out of the house, out of bed for God’s sake, is love.’

'Morton is fresh ... He's brilliant.'
Helen Dunmore, Guardian

'Morton is a crack storyteller and his words and stories are infused with genuine compassion.'
Christos Tsiolkas, award-winning author of The Slap

'Wonderfully readable and wide-ranging exploration of the visible and invisible touchstones of our lives ... this is nourishing reading for our lonely, frightening and fraught times. Part self-help book, part treatise on the importance of love, kindness and forgiveness ... Morton is a national treasure and we need more like him.'

'Read this investigation because it will remind you of how optimism and love work together. Read it because your heart has been broken somewhere along the line and you need to know how to mend. Read this book because Rick Morton is the bloke we all need in our life to show us it is going to be okay.'

'Wryly comic, hard-thought and deeply-felt ... It is a heartbreaking book, but a beguiling and necessary one. And a work far wiser than the modesty of its author would allow.'
