Starting a dialogue on mortality, adoption and mental illness

Here’s a review I wrote  published in today’s Vancouver Sun of Joan Didion’s Blue Nights.

It situates itself within the longer-term ache and gape of grief and the questioning that creeps in alongside that. Didion ponders the accumulation that is living with profound grief. She asks a lot of questions.
