Yann Martel. The Bookseller. Cynthia Swanson. Give Me Your Hand. In addition to grief counseling, I would recommend this book highly to anyone dealing with a sudden death of a loved one. Didion's memoir helped me so muchher descriptions of her emotional trauma, and how she lived in the aftermath were spot-on and very similar to my own experience.

I am usually very focused, detail-oriented; my memory is sharp. But since my mom died, I've been forgetful, unfocused, unmotivated. I felt like I was losing my mind.

And I just kept thinking that if I could make it through the funeral, that would be the worst part. As Didion explains, that is NOT the worst part, or the hardest partthe worst and hardest things come later.

Didion writes a lot about her own similar problems when grieving, and it was so good to know that it's not just me, and that it will get better. I bought a copy for my dad, too, and he devoured it and also found it very helpfulin fact he's mentioned several times how valuable this book has been to him. I know it's a memoir and not really a manual, but somehow, it has been something of a guidebook for us.

I bought it on Kindle for me and a hardcover for Dad; I'm going to buy an extra copy to keep, just to have on hand in case a friend could one day benefit from it, too. Read this book if you are dealing with a sudden, unexpected death of a loved one. Or, give it to someone else who is enduring something similar. You won't regret it. Such good medicine for a grieving heart. I'd bottled up much of that grief after having lost two very special loved ones to cancer and the dissolution of my marriage all within a period of two years.

The documentary cracked my heart open again; the book encouraged me to start the healing process. I also know that if we are to live ourselves there comes a point at which we must relinquish the dead, let them go, keep them dead.

Let them become the photograph on the table. Let them become the name on the trust accounts.

The Year of Magical Thinking

Let go of them in the water. Paperback Verified Purchase. Didion felt after losing her husband, John Gregory Dunne, after forty years of marriage. As someone who believes that "honesty" is the one essential quality every piece of great writing has in common, well then Mrs.

Didion has hit the ball out of the park. Her writing is not only honest, but enthralling, and compelling. Yet, this is not the type of book I would recommend to everyone.

For people dealing with grief or have experienced great grief one can easily relate and find a certain amount of comfort in the author's experiences, yet if one is in a happy mood or chronically depressed I would not recommend this book. It is a heart wrenching story and sometimes it is better not to disturb one's peace of mind.

Joan Didion after the first 60 pages has become a kindred spirit to me through her writing. There is no recipe for grieving and at times it's like your in someone elses house and can not find anything you need. Words, sentences you've spoken but can not remember. Places and going through the motions but did you really do it or you just thought so.

The Awful power of grief can derange the mind. Thoughts, sights, smells, the physical body are stretched so thin it's beyond reality and fantasy. When my dearest husband died, I lost days, forget phone numbers, people's names, whether I showered. Reading this book provides me with somber reality that not just myself had entered the dark whirlpool of which I was too weak and lost to find my way out. This book as allowed me to read about my own road of grief Which is not close to ending.

And Superb book, thank you. This is the first book by Didion I've ever read, so I didn't know what to expect. I can't compare it to any of her other books. Saying that, I found the book disjointed, sometimes almost lurching from topic to topic, feeling to feeling. At the end, I realized that that probably exactly mirrored her experience of losing her dear husband, even as she coped with her daughter's horrific health issues. Everything a jumble. Interior chaos. Coping mechanisms that only work sometimes.

Her courageous book is a rich expose of how we frail humans experience loss and survive. Very touching. The guillotine is abrupt second only to the immediate separation one feels when someone significant in your life dies. Didion is masterful in explaining her coming to terms with her losses in a way that is sorrowful however painful but nearly childlike in observation before and after the events. Most touching.
