ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to offer the latest work by Deirdre Fagan The Grief Eater hitting stores everywhere now.

“There is so much to admire in these deeply human tales confronting grief, death, loneliness, and despair. Each compelling and complex character reveals an unexpected grace, reveals comfort where one would never expect to find it, and this gives a reader the courage to face the worst. Whether you’re grieving or celebrating the beauty of this life, these stories will speak to you.” – Karen Stefano, author of What A Body Remembers: A Memoir of Sexual Assault and Its Aftermath

“Deirdre Fagan’s distinctive voice, spare yet warm, lures the reader into spacious interiors affording the reader room to roam. Thought-provoking, beguiling, astringent, yet consoling, this cohesive collection of tales of loss never fails to engross and surprise. The surprises culminate with an insightful resolution of the delightful last tale. Haversham’s Dickens and Lenore’s Poe would, I think, reach out for this volume.” – Jon Sindell, author of The Pugilist Poets of Venice
