What I’m Reading: About Grief

9781566638586I’m currently reading Ron Marasco and Brian Shuff’s “About Grief.” Their book references other well-known sources on grief (like Joan Didion’s classic “The Year of Magical Thinking), but also includes the authors’ straightforward and friendly advice, insights, and truth-telling about being bereaved in the 21st century.

(I welcome your book recommendations: leave a comment or email me.)
