A Death in the Family

When the world as you know it unravels

The lyrical exploration of grief through the eyes of 6-year-old Rufus in the aftermath of his father’s death. Along with Rufus, we understand what death means – how it can seem so incomprehensibly absolute. What do you do when the life you have so carefully nurtured collapses? When the unthinkable happens and life comes to a standstill? The endless waiting to make sense of an unknowable world, the hoping, and the fading optimism. What and who can hold you together then? This book says that while one cannot escape unscathed, it is still possible for life to move again.
