From one of America's iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage - and a life, in good times and bad - that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child.
This is a seminal book about the power of grief - making it a top choice of the editorial staff at Give InKind.
Why We Love This Gift: We love this book because in clear and intelligent prose, Didion gives language to the experience of grieving. Accessible and thought-provoking it is a book to which almost anyone can relate.
What To Express In Your Card: I can't begin to imagine the pain you are in. I think that Joan Didion writes eloquently about the sudden death of her husband. This may or may not resonate with you - I understand the everyone's experience of grief is different - but I thought this might be a good place to start. I wonder if we could meet for a drink to talk it over. I am sending you lots of love.
