Talking about death and grief has become something of a modern taboo. Most of us would rather avoid the subject altogether because it makes us feel anxious and awkward. When Annie Broadbent's mum died, one of the hardest parts of her experience was seeing her friends and extended family paralysed by their fear of saying or doing the wrong thing.

Grief is an unavoidable part of life and we will all be called upon at some point to help a friend or loved one cope with the death of someone they love. We Need to Talk About Grief will help you do that. Frustrated and saddened by her own experience, Annie decided to share her story and the stories of others she has met, in order to shed light on the emotions felt by the bereaved and how best to support someone grieving for a loved one. The contributors differ in age, gender and background but all have experienced immediate loss, whether a child, parent, sibling, partner or close friend. Combined with expert advice from key charities, We Need to Talk About Grief will help you navigate the common pitfalls, such as choosing appropriate words of comfort, making practical gestures of help, how to react to crying, when to offer a hug and how often to stay in touch.

This moving and enlightening collection of voices from the shores of grief is an invaluable guide that will help anyone wanting to comfort a grieving loved one.

MEDIA REVIEWS
We can only support and agree with Annie's brave attempt to put death talk on the map. These are very difficult conversations to have and this book will be a helpful tool to encourage those who want to help those suffering with grief to share some of their burden, especially in our "quick fix, easy answer" society. * Shelley Gilbert, CEO of Grief Encounter *
It is wonderful. Pitch perfect in tone and a very important book. It will help many people. * Sally Brampton, author of Shoot the Damn Dog *
Wonderfully moving, relevant and important * Kate Timperley, Maggie's *
