Grief is for People by Sloane Crosley

Staff Pick


Profound meditations on love and grief are best when they're as hilarious as they are heart-wrenching. This story centers on two losses--a theft and a suicide, the latter of the author’s best friend, Russell, who was also her boss. An older gay man and publicity exec, he took Crosley under his wing at a prestigious NYC publishing house. His bawdy and brash sense of humor (i.e. calling her a “toothless hooker” from a place of love) also got him into trouble with HR. Then there was his habit of inviting favorite staff members to his country house every weekend. This book has everything except answers.
