Description
"This Is How I Spell Grief" offers a no-nonsense guide to dealing with the loss of a loved one by sharing the author's story of recovery from the double loss of his mother and father. This book helps readers prepare for the unexpected and withstand the repeated blows of tragic loss. The guide also eschews expert opinions and macro-level analyses in favor of common sense, addressing the reader in a down-to-earth fashion to show them they're not alone. "This Is How I Spell Grief" walks the reader through the experience of losing a loved one with intimacy, warmth, and humor. We must become experts of our own grief. No one can do it for us. As someone who has lost his family, author Erik Lewin had to make himself an expert in grief twice over. His unforgettable book offers a helping hand to those getting started. The disorientation of loss and bereavement faced by a newly minted mourner can be daunting. But there are no shortcuts through grief, and it's something we must learn to live with, as it may never fully leave us. We can resolve to harness our grief for the sake of transformation, and throughout the book, Lewin demonstrates ways in which he turned his grief into an impetus to change. There is no one solution to grief that applies to everyone. No two lives or losses are the same, and so all we can truly rely on for help are the stories others tell us. In this way, "This Is How I Spell Grief" takes a counter-intuitive approach to self-help; there are not eight simple exercises one can do to get over the loss. Instead, readers must address their grief on their own terms to find their own way to make peace with their loss.
