    When Eva and Adam fall into bed one Friday night, tired and happy after drinks with friends, they have their whole lives ahead of them. But their story ends in the first few minutes. That's no reason to stop listening, though, because How I Lose You is a story told backwards - and it's all the more warm, tender and moving because we know it is going to be interrupted. It's a story Eva thought she knew - but as you and she will discover, it's not just the ending of the story that she got wrong.
