Editorial Reviews

Review

Jeffrey Berman s examination of each partner s writings gives this book its unique perspective. I know of no other work like his in thanatology; Companionship in Grief will make a significant contribution to persons interested in death, dying, and bereavement. --David Balk, editor in chief, 'Handbook of Thanatology: The Essential'

This is a book that will be interesting to theorists of grief and grieving and to critics of contemporary British and American literature while at the same time appealing to general readers who have themselves experienced crucial losses or fear them. --Sandra M. Gilbert, author of 'Death s Door: Modern Dying and the Way We Grieve'

In this unique, carefully researched volume, Berman examines memoirs written by well-known authors in response to the loss of a spouse who, in each case, was also a published writer. --Choice

About the Author

Jeffrey Berman is professor of English at the University at Albany. His previous books include 'Risky Writing: Self-Disclosure and Self-Transformation in the Classroom;' 'Surviving Literary Suicide;' and 'Diaries to an English Professor: Pain and Growth in the Classroom.'

Not what I had expected, I had hoped for the original works of each author, instead I am reading an academic's interpretations.
