The Wild Edge of Sorrow and A Grief Observed

Two classic books have arrived discussing the subject of grief and loss. The famous work by C.S Lewis ‘A Grief Observed’ is a journal written upon the loss of his wife,  and has been called ‘a literary answer to the grief of loss’. ‘The Wild Edge of Sorrow’ is a handbook written by the Psychotherapist Francis Weller where he highlights the intimate bond between grief and gratitude, sorrow and intimacy. These books will hopefully be useful learning texts on staff who are both dealing with grief, and are faced with loss on a daily basis.
