read The Son author Michel Rostain Michel Rostain ✓ 3 read summary Í eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Michel Rostain S personal journey through grief but the twist that makes the journey truly remarkable and tips this true story into fiction is the fact that we see it all through Lion's eyesIn a stunningly original blurring of memoir and fiction THE SON tack. This is a very powerful book that is a blending of both fiction and non fiction Written by a bereaved father who uses his dead son s voice to narrate it is both insightful tender but gives enough distance that it is not distressing The book illustrates beautifully the pull to life after the devastating and sudden loss of a much loved child Both parents are artists working in theatre and opera and the book describes their use of both music and prose to articulate their loss and also as an expression of grief Ultimately it is a tale of trying to find meaning and a means to go on despite their loss I thought it was inclusive of every aspect of grief and felt it would be a great book for other bereaved parents as well as anyone who works in grief and loss as a way of learning Would highly recommend as a general great read as well
