Don’t Be Sad When I’m Gone, “Beatriz paints a portrait of an analyzed grief – but not in the ways you might think. This book isn’t about dissecting grief itself in order to move beyond it. Rather, it’s a love story. One about a husband and wife, yes. Even more, it’s a love story between one’s former self and the self that is yet to come.”

Megan Devine is a pioneer in the fields of grief support and emotional intelligence. Through her website, talks, and courses, she’s been shaking up our culture’s ideas around grief – and love – since 2009. Her book, It’s OK That You’re Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn’t Understand.

“This book transcends death and grief and turns out to be equally about life. And ground zero for Beatriz’s life force is her native home of Buenos Aires. Sprinkled between her therapy sessions, she proudly shows us the Buenos Aires that long ago took up permanent residence in her blood. She invites us into the private, intimate sessions she underwent to help with her grief. We witness her irrational beliefs and temporary bursts of insanity that most mourners will recognize. We discover her bouts of anger, both rational and non-sensical. These sessions provide the backbone of her narrative and pull the reader through her process of recovery.
