Publisher Description

A compelling, relatable and powerfully moving memoir of people-pleasing, family and what it means to love and be loved, from radio presenter and podcaster Linda Marigliano.

Linda Marigliano has built a career out of performing for other people. In her day-job as an on-air presenter or in her family home, she contorted herself into 'the cool girl' or 'the good girl', and struggled to ever truly switch off.

As she repeatedly over-committed and sought approval in all its guises, she started to ask herself: Why am I like this? Combing through her complex relationship with her mother, the sense of duty within her extended Italian and Chinese-Malaysian families, and the twisting turns of both her career path and her love life, she noticed a pattern emerging. Her love language had warped into acts of service that pleased everyone but herself, without boundaries or exceptions. And she'd lost the ability to translate the vocabulary of love being spoken all around her.

Love Language is Linda's determined reclamation of her identity; a fiercely relatable and viscerally honest account of what it means to love and be loved.

'A tender and honest reflection of love in all its intricate forms, Love Language is achingly relatable and poignant. A truly beautiful book.' - Julia Busuttil Nishimura, author of Around the Table

'Linda's raw and honest account of her journey to reclaim her identity and understand the true meaning of self-love resonated deeply with me. In the challenging times of Covid, Linda's courage to confront and unravel her internal script is both inspiring and relatable. Love Language serves as a timely reminder of the importance of self-discovery, personal growth and navigating love in the face of adversity. This book will captivate and inspire you.' - Chantelle Otten, author of The Sex Ed You Never Had

'This will surprise no one, but Linda's book is absolutely brilliant. Linda's vulnerability is a gift to us all. A gift that enables us to take a step closer to our authentic self.' - Hugh van Cuylenburg, author of The Resilience Project

'Linda writes about the complexities and hurdles of love, family and communication with tenderness, warmth and honesty. I loved it.' - Jessie Ware, author of Omelette

'A tender, honest account of the courage it takes to do life your own way.' - Kumi Taguchi, journalist and host of Insight
