Product Details


Heartfelt, but never sentimental, Sorrow’s Company reveals the bittersweetness of the grieving process and the possibility of healing through words. -Greg Lalas, Boston Magazine

“Writer, editor, and teacher DeWitt Henry sought out 15 writers of various degrees of renown to express their feelings after the death of someone they loved, whether it was a mother, a child, a lover, or a close friend. . . . This book on loss and grief is not all sadness and darkness. The section on legacies is full of grateful joy and thanks for the dead-and the living.” –The Boston Globe

“Not many readers will complete this collection dry-eyed, for it moves from descriptions of the deaths of loved ones to expressions of loss to considerations of what remains . . . powerful, wrenching, illuminating, and lovely.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Henry gathers from some of the best contemporary literature on facing death and losing loved ones. . . . Powerful and involving.” –Booklist
