Modern Loss: Candid Conversation About Grief. Beginners Welcome.

Modern Loss: Candid Conversation About Grief. Beginners Welcome.

by Rebecca Soffer Author and Gabrielle Birkner Author

Grief is hard, but it's hardest when it feels like you're the only one. In this empathetic collection, read about a couple dozen other experiences with grief, ranging from the sudden to the long-expected, the loss of a spouse to the death of a parent or sibling to the loss of a child or pregnancy. The experiences of the authors are refreshingly wide-ranging. Beloved partners and family members are mourned, but contributors also write candidly about the complexities of losing an estranged parent, a difficult aunt, a spouse whose cheating is revealed after their death, a teenage child you simply can't afford to take the time to mourn, or someone you never had a chance to really get to know. An honest and platitude-free collection of real stories, this book helps.
