Author Miriam Weinstein often focuses on parenting and grandparenting, helping readers get the most out of family life. In her new book, All Set For Black, Thanks: A New Look At Mourning, Miriam offers friendly and forthright help, drawn from her own experience, needed in times of mourning and grief.
Most of the essays are autobiographical, acknowledging how closely we remain involved with people who died years ago. The title sets the tone for the whole book. Recognizing that funny can coexist with sadness, the essays have an insouciant tone that make them wonderfully readable.
