"This perceptive book should absorb and enrich anyone who admits to being human."
Benjamin Spock, M.D.
Essayist Judith Viorst, who has humorously eased our journey to middle age, now turns her considerable talents to a more serious and far-reaching subject: how we grow and change through the losses that are an inevitable and necessary part of life. Arguing persuasively that through the loss of our mothers' protection, the loss of the impossible expectations we bring to relationships, the loss of our younger selves, and the loss of our loved ones through separation and death, we gain deeper persepctive, true maturity, and fuller wisdom about life, Judith Viorst has wirtten a life-affirming and life-changing book.

From the Publisher:

Shortly after my mother died, a friend recommended a particular book on loss,
which I went out and bought. What surprised me most about that book was that it
didn't focus solely on loss through death, and I began a voracious campaign to
acknowledge, understand, and mourn the various kinds of loss I had experienced in
my life. NECESSARY LOSSES was a natural choice. I had long enjoyed Viorst's
writing for children (even as an adult, having spent many years in juvenile
publishing), so I was very open to both the author and the subject. And I wasn't
disappointed. Viorst has the credentials of a professional psychologist, yet she
brings to a profoundly serious topic the same warm, knowing style that makes
her kids' books so accessible. I found it incredibly healing.

Laurie Kahn, Associate Managing Editor
