Kayak Morning: Reflections on Love, Grief, and Small Boats by Roger Rosenblatt
Kayak Morning is a follow-up book to Roger Rosenblatt's Making Toast, where he told of the life changes brought about by the death of his daughter. Two-and-a-half years after her death, he takes up kayaking near his Long Island. While kayaking, he has time to meditate on literature, loss, grief, solitude, healing, and love. Roger Rosenblatt's book has received positive reviews with the Washington Post saying, "To keep a family going at a time of great loss is hard work, demanding both courage and stamina. To choose to spend time alone with the deep personal sadness caused by a child's death may be even more difficult. Yet Rosenblatt's meditations in Kayak Morning show us that it is possible in this way - and perhaps only in this way - to bring oneself through an all-consuming grief, and to discover beyond it the imperishable constant that is love."
