Wifflesnook Posted April 26, 2013 Report Share Posted April 26, 2013 I have just finished (in a single session) a wonderful book. It's called Levels of Life, by the British novelist Julian Barnes. I listened to it on Audible and it was read by him. The first two sections aren't about grief at all, but he means you to read them before the section which relates to the death four years ago of his wife of 34 years from cancer. I should mention that he hasn't any faith in the after life, but for those who do have such belief, reading this book will not harm their belief, it's just that he hasn't. I have read several books by people whose spouses have died, and this one deserves to be included with the best of them. His account of grieving is so powerful and to me so meaningful, and in some ways comforting in that it confronts how those of us whose soul mates have died feel, how other people react, how we seek meaning. I can't recommend it enough and I hope you will seek it out. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
