With this superpack, we're dialing down right into the hardest stuff. Grief, illness, torture, genocide—we've got it all, plus the light at the end of the tunnel. 

  • White Elephants is Katie Haegele's touching account of coping with the loss of her father by going to yard sales with her mother
  • Cycletherapy has a dozen accounts of working through grief and loss by bicycling
  • Sick collects people's experiences with illness and support in leftist and radical communities
  • Hurt is a readable political science meditation on torture—understanding it and fighting it
  • New Girl Law follows a group of young Cambodian university students as they seek to rewrite their gender roles in a country recovering from genocide
  • And finally, Dr. Faith's zine This is Your Brain on Grief walks you through what you should and should not say to a grieving person and how to cope with your loss on your own terms and in your own way
