Gift of Grief

by Kamla K. Kapur (Author)

About Book

GIFT of GRIEF is a series of thematically linked love poems addressed to the author’s former husband who took his life. The 31 connected poems are a dialogue between a woman and her ghost husband. It is the inner journey of a survivor of suicide whose process of grief turns from a suicidal sorrow, guilt, and suffering, to a resurgence and celebration of life. Kapur’s brutal honesty throughout the poems and a prose epilogue gives the reader an insight into the hidden springs of human nature, and makes this book of poems a powerful and moving experience. “The grief of his loss was an opportunity for self-transformation and the poems were my journey through death, back to a new perception and experience of life,” says Kapur.

It was previously published in 2005 as As A Fountain In A Garden and received critical acclaim.
