Summary:

"Death affects us all. Yet it is still the last taboo in our society, and the process of mourning is still deeply misunderstood. In Grief Works we hear stories of those who have experience great love and great loss -- and survived. Arranged according to one's relationship to the person who has died -- a partner, a parent, a sibling, a child -- these stories show how grief unmasks our greatest fears, strips away our layers of protection, and reveals our innermost selves." -- From book jacket.
