Too much loss

Joan Didion's sad "Year of Magical Thinking" chronicled what happened to her when her husband suddenly died. Shortly after, her daughter, Quintana Roo, also died, suddenly and at a young age.
Now Didion has somehow managed to write a book about that loss, too. I'm sure I'll read "Blue Nights," but I can't exactly say I'm looking forward to it. It's sad that she had to write it at all.

Notice how similar the two book covers are.
