What to read when you experience the loss of a loved one...
I've lost my beloved father this August, and I wasn't sure what my first read after that loss could be.
It is deeply intimate to read the letters of a person who suffers, who experiences a loss; The loss of a loved one, the loss of self.
I will be rereading those letters, especially now that the autumn has just arrived.
Stunning work, Robin!
Thank you!

This book was deep. It's crazy because I was getting Edgar Allen Poe Vibes. I felt the authors pain, confusion, and sorrows from being in a place that treated humans like animals. Also, the resentment of being away from a loved one.

The bones of a beloved emperor, and I, the
motionless chariot
trying to drag them home with forced hope.”
