Shaun Usher gathers together some of the most powerful messages about grief, from the heart-wrenching pain of losing a loved one to reliving the warm and funny moments. These thirty-one letters, the earliest written in 45 bc, the most recent in 2019, come from the pens and typewriters of novelists, spiritual leaders, activists, musicians, politicians, poets and everyday folk, sent from addresses in all corners of the globe. Tying them all together is grief, an emotional process we are all destined to experience as we stumble blindly through life.
Includes letters by:
Audre Lorde, Robert Frost, Nick Cave, Rainer Maria Rilke, Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, Kahlil Gibran, Virginia Woolf, Samuel Beckett, Edith Wharton, and many more.
