Wherever love and death meet there is grief.  It affects us all regardless of ethnicity, age, class, or sexual orientation.  Grief is universal – it has endured across time, societies and cultures from the earliest human communities to the present day.  But the way we deal with grief is changing. Increasingly, we are diagnosing grief as a medical condition to be treated rather than embracing it as a natural part of being human.

In this book, Svend Brinkmann gets to the heart of what it is to grieve, arguing that the sorrow we experience after the death of a loved one is a necessary and meaningful dimension of human existence.  However painful, it unites us all.  As humans we are uniquely privileged to feel grief.  Rather than trying to escape or smother grief, we must allow ourselves to feel and accept it as the price we pay for love.
