How we cope with grief and come to terms with the death of a loved one shapes our world. In this comprehensive guide to the mourning process, Dr Volkan, a world-recognised authority on grief, shows how each mourning is as individualised as our fingerprints, encoded with our past history of losses. Anecdotal and compassionate, this is a profoundly moving and informative study of how grief and loss shape all our lives.

Reviews and Endorsements:

‘This humane and eloquent book offers valuable insight into the ways in which we suffer from, wrestle with, adapt to, and grow through loss.’
— Judith Viorst, author of Necessary Losses

‘When you are bereaved, you always need but do not always find a good friend whose expressions of sympathy are knowing, simple, unpious, unpompous, and mercifully brief. Life After Loss has this same rare combination of qualities. If you know someone who needs such support, give this book; it will actually help.’
— Shana Alexander, author of When She Was Bad and Very Much a Lady

‘When the earth opens and takes someone we love, we glimpse for an instant, but for all time, the utter fragility of life – and the hazard of loving. Those who cannot face the maximum sorrow of grief – cannot weep and remember – cannot let go, cannot move on. Nowhere is there a finer guide to loss and grief than Life After Loss. Writing with intelligence and heart and style, Volkan and Zintl have produced a classic.’
— Michael P. Nichols, PhD, coauthor of Family Healing: Tales of Hope and Renewal from Family Therapy

‘Whatever the ravages of grief, it has produced this wonderful book by Dr Volkan and Elizabeth Zintl. Life After Loss is a special present from them to us.’
— Rita Mae Brown, author of Rubyfruit Jungle and Southern Discomfort

‘Everyone should read, digest, and metabolize this book – for their own sake and for our children’s sake.’
— Howard Stein, PhD, Professor of Family Medicine, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center
