Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Pub Date: Apr 1, 2011 | Author: Isaac Marion | Publisher: Simon & Schuster

R is a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains.

The Truth About Grief by Ruth Davis Konigsberg

Pub Date: Jan 1, 2011 | Author: Ruth Davis Konigsberg | Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Every time we experience loss-a personal or national one-we hear them recited: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The stages are invoked to explain everything from how we will recover from the death of a loved one to a sudden environmental catastrophe or to the trading away of a basketball star. But the stunning fact is that there is no validity to the stages that were proposed by psychiatrist Elisabeth KÜbler-Ross more than forty years ago Read more »
