Product description

Review

A thought-provoking book: the fascination of its themes, and the delicacy of their handling, will stay with me for a long time. --(Hilary Mantel, Author of Wolf Hall, Winner of the 2009 Man Booker Prize)

A beautiful, poetic meditation on loss and grief, Marion Steel's book is both an exploration and a reflection of the mourning process. Going beyond the constraints of the usual academic studies, it is a moving, inspiring and thought-provoking work. --(Darian Leader, Author of The New Black: Mourning, Melancholia and Depression and Why Do People Get Ill?)

If pleasure and anguish are past, if we lose our desire which both enraptures and torments us, what is left? Life or death? This is the central question that Marion Steel explores in this searching, subtle and necessarily ambiguous book, in which the deeper meaning of that old saying amor vincit omnia is brought to light and, with it, the strength that allows the grieving to accept, and to renew, not only the life of the self, but that greater life that transcends individual pleasures and torments. --(John Burnside, Author of Glister and A Lie About My Father)

About the Author

Marion Steel works as an existential psychotherapist within Palliative Care in a Central London teaching hospital, and also runs a private practice. She lives in Dulwich near London.
