Getting over a breakup by gardening, with Alice Vincent

Support Millennial Love with a donation today:

This week, Olivia is joined by author and journalist Alice Vincent to discuss her memoir, Rootbound, which has just come out in paperback.

In the book, Alice talks about a year of her life in her late 20s when out of nowhere, she found herself single, living out of a suitcase and overcoming heartbreak.

The two discuss how Alice found a new lease of life in the wake of her breakup through nurturing pot plants and surrounding herself with greenery.

They also discuss the complexities of writing about ex-partners and the strangely cathartic compulsion to make your private life public when you're having a tough time.
