I am glad that my story may have helped in some small way.
There were a number of books that meant a great deal to me after Sean’s death: Joan Didion’s Year of Magical Thinking, Judith Barrington’s Lifesaving, After Shocks: The Poetry of Recovery for Life-Shattering Events, and Andrew X. Pham’s Catfish and Mandala.
But two books really stood out for me. Elizabeth McCracken's An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination is incredible and I found myself wishing I had written some of what she wrote. And Sonali Deraniyagala’s memoir, Wave has got to be the most brutal, unapologetic, unflinching, uncomfortable, raw, brave, and truthful book I’ve read about grief.(less)

"Picked this up from my local library.
Interesting read- in detail about grieving for a lost one, how do people manage.
A topic that is often shied away in this society.
Thank you for sharing, Shannon!
Enjoyed reading the book! "

“a west coast feels like home. I use the ocean to orient myself, finding north with the water to my left and telling time as the sun drops into the sea. An east coast has always felt a little foreign to me, a sunrise over the ocean a little wrong.”
Shannon Leone Fowler, Traveling with Ghosts: A Memoir

“The Israelis I met didn’t seem hunted or haunted. They were living their lives, going to cafés and clubs, dating and drinking and dancing. They just weren’t doing it anywhere near the doors.”
