Joyce Carol Oates on Widowhood Reconsidered

A Widow's Story reviewed.

It's odd to reflect on another's grief and how they choose to relate it and how they choose to cope with it.  Whether or not she was engaged within a year--I don't know that we can say what that says about her experience.  Every person's experience is different and I'm just deeply grateful that such a talented person (or any person, for that matter) could find her way out of the purgatory of grief.
