Through the lens of 'new wave' theories of grief, it looks at how 'memoirs of textured recovery' contribute to new understandings of loss as complex, nuanced, and ambiguous. In asking timely questions at the forefront of contemporary issues surrounding life writing, healing, and recovery, it contributes to ongoing conversations about mourning and sheds light on how we navigate loss. Drawing from life writing narratives written by some of the best contemporary memoirists of our age, Navigating Loss allows readers to connect with women whose real-life stories of loss form in themselves a kind of 'weeping constellation' (Gail Jones) or community of mourners."@en ;
