Coping with Grief
How can we heal the wounds left after a loved one’s death? That's the link between much-loved French author Philippe Claudel and Uruguayan sensation Daniel Mella’s latest books. In Claudel’s The Tree of the Toraja, a filmmaker confronts mortality when hearing of a friend’s impending demise, while with Mella’s Older Brother, a lifeguard dies when struck by lightning leaving behind a grief-stricken sibling.
