Modern Loss with Rebecca Soffer
In this wise and often funny book, Soffer and Birkner, along with more than forty contributors, including Lucy Kalanithi (widow of When Breath Becomes Air author Paul Kalanithi), stylist Stacy London, rocker Amanda Palmer, Girls writer and comedian Yassir Lester, CNNs Brian Stelter, WNBA All-Star Chamique Holdsclaw, Kim Goldman (sister of Ron Goldman), Michael Greif (director of the 2017 Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen) share their provocative stories on themes including sex and intimacy after loss, technology, and the secrets we harbor and uncover. Accompanied by beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and witty how to cartoons by artist Peter Arkle, each contribution provides a unique perspective on loss as well as a remarkable life-affirming message: Youre not broken, life will go on, and it can actually be pretty rewarding. Theres also a glossary of terms that therapists probably dont use but most of us should. (Looking at you, sadbooking.)

Inspired by the website that the New York Times hailed as redefining mourning, MODERN LOSS is a fresh and irreverent examination into navigating grief and resilience in our time  when we mourn public figures and national tragedies with hashtags, intimate posts about loss go viral, and we receive automated birthday reminders for dead friends.

With their website  and now, with this book  Soffer and Birkner offer the insights of their community to help us cry, laugh, grieve, identify, and  above all  empathize. Beginners welcome.
