He shows how these writers - by putting their passion and pain into their work - have enabled him to bear the weight of his own grief and sadness by "speaking out from under the burden of theirs."Buechner's ruminations on their writings leads to the revelation that God accepts us for doing the best we can, even if our lives are in some ways a failure; even if we have lived a life haunted by tragedy, as Buechner's has been haunted by his father's suicide."--Jacket.
