In 2016, Rob Delaney’s one-year-old son, Henry, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The family had moved from Los Angeles to London with their two young boys when Rob’s wife was pregnant with Henry. His illness was a cataclysm that changed everything about their lives. Amid the hospital routine, surgeries and brutal treatments, they found a newfound community of nurses, aides, caregivers and fellow parents contending with the unthinkable. Henry died two years later, and his family watched their world fall away to reveal the things that matter most. A HEART THAT WORKS is Delaney’s intimate, unflinching and fiercely funny exploration of what happened --- from the harrowing illness to the vivid, bodily impact of grief and the blind, furious rage that followed through to the forceful, unstoppable love that remains.
