A book in which some of our best writers address their own losses and help us endure our ownA heartbreaking, comforting and beautiful collection of true stories about grief and mourning from some of Canadas best known writers.When Jean Bairds daughter, Bronwyn, died suddenly, Jeans deep instinct was to turn to books to help her in her time of sudden loss. Although she found that the thoughts of counselors, psychologists, Buddhists, and self-help gurus were perhaps some help, the works that truly reached to the heart of the matter were by literary writers, largely from the UK and the US. Scanning the Canadian landscape, Jean and her husband George Bowering found elegies and tributes, but little from our writers about the person who is left behind to mourn or what it takes to endure grieving. The Heart Does Break an anthology of twenty original pieces sets out to fill that gap.From the Hardcover edition.
