The Long Goodbye by Megan O'Rourke. Read about this book in the Globe & Mail. It seemed to be in sync with where I am at now as I am dealing with my 92 year old mother. Thought this would be a good book to get some insights into death & grieving as my mother will more than likely die before me. I found this book to be interesting, insightful & a very easy read so purchased one for myself & 1 as a gift to a friend whose 96 year old mom just died. A good way I thought to let my friend know that I understand the rawness of her grief. I was a bit reluctant to start reading the book as I thought it would be depressing but this was not the case in fact in some places it was quite humorous so all in all a good read.
