In this "funny, fresh, and utterly believable" New York Times bestseller, a young woman struggles to build a new life after the death of her husband (Publishers Weekly). 36-year-old Sophie Stanton loses her young husband to cancer. In an age where women are expected to be high-achievers, Sophie desperately wants to be a good widow -- a graceful, composed Jackie Kennedy kind of widow. Alas, Sophie is more of a Jack Daniels kind. Downing cartons of ice cream for breakfast, breaking down in the produce section of supermarkets, showing up to work in her bathrobe and bunny slippers. Soon, she's not only lost her husband, but her job and her waistline as well. In a desperate attempt to reinvent her life, Sophie moves to Ashland, Oregon. But instead of the way it's depicted in the movies, with a rugged Sam Shepherd kind of guy finding her, Sophie finds herself in the middle of Lucy-and-Ethel madcap adventures with a darkly comic edge. Still, Sophie proves that with enough humor and chutzpah, it is possible to have life after loss.

An unexpected, poignant, and personal account of loving and losing pets, exploring the singular bonds we have with our companion animals, and how to grieve them once they’ve passed. E.B. Bartels has had a lot of pets—dogs, birds, fish, tortoises. As varied a bunch as they are, they’ve taught her one universal truth: to own a pet is to love a pet, and to own a pet is also—with rare exception—to lose that pet in time. But while we have codified traditions to mark the passing of our fellow humans, most cultures don’t have the same for pets. Bartels takes us from Massachusetts to Japan, from ancient Egypt to the modern era, in search of the good pet death. We meet veterinarians, archaeologists, ministers, and more, offering an idiosyncratic, inspiring array of rituals—from the traditional (scattering ashes, commissioning a portrait), to the grand (funereal processions, mausoleums), to the unexpected (taxidermy, cloning). The central lesson: there is no best practice when it comes to mourning your pet, except to care for them in death as you did in life, and find the space to participate in their end as fully as you can. Punctuated by wry, bighearted accounts of Bartels’s own pets and their deaths, Good Grief is a cathartic companion through loving and losing our animal family. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

This book is for everyone who has lost a loved one or knows someone who has (which should include most people reading this). The topics of death, dying, funerals, and/or grief are typically as welcome as a time share presentation at the conclusion of a really great deal you got on a vacation package at a resort. It is the necessary evil at the end of the fun. In Good Grief. Celebrate Your Life, Jason gently steers the reader into a different perspective of each of these topics and offers hope and counsel to people who grope for answers in difficult situations: "What do I say to someone who is grieving?" "Why make a fuss over my funeral? I'll be dead and gone."The grief journey has a significant correlation to the funeral or memorial service (or lack thereof), which is why Jason suggests to celebrate your life or your loved one's life so that the journey of grief can, in fact, be good. Most everyone grieves (many more things than the death of a loved one). This book will help you not only in your personal journey of grief but also will guide you in ways to get your arms around others who are grieving, along with fun suggestions of celebrating the lives of your loved ones who are still here with you now.Get ready for an intimate, personal, one-on-one conversation with Jason, then use the information to help others celebrate life too.
