Top ten books about grief

Douglas Kennedy, author of The Pursuit of Happiness and other books, named his ten books about grief for the Guardian.

One title on the list:
The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion

Didion's now-classic account of the sudden death of her husband and (latterly) of her daughter. It brilliantly essays the way the unimaginable enters quotidian life with happenstantial abruptness.
Read about all ten titles on Kennedy's list.
