How to Make Friends With the Dark, by Kathleen Glasgow
A brutal story about grief. It's vivid and realistic, but ultimately numbing in its length and breadth. The good news is that it ends well, but for anyone who finds that they can take grief in only small doses, this is not a good read. It will suck you down into a very dark place alongside its heroine. Only in the end do things start to look up and this, surprisingly, is the least authentic part of the book. For masochists only!
