More Memoirs

Memoirs

Recently, I’ve read the memoirs pictured. I especially enjoyed The Long Goodbye for what the author writes about C.S. Lewis and how his book, A Grief Observed, helped her as she encountered her mother’s death. This sentence follows her praise for Lewis:

The literature of mourning enacts that dilemma; its solace lies in the ritual of remembering the dead and then saying, There is no solace, and also, This has been going on a long time. (126)
