Happy publication day to Kate Inglis and her book NOTES FOR THE EVERLOST: A FIELD GUIDE TO GRIEF, publishing with Shambhala Publications!

From the publisher: “When Kate Inglis’s twin boys were born prematurely, one survived and the other did not. Part memoir, part handbook for the heartbroken, this powerful, unsparing account of loss will speak to all who have been bereaved and are grieving, and offers a beacon as we practice integrating loss into life.”

Kate Inglis lives along the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. She is the author for two novels, The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods and its sequel Flight of the Griffons, and If I Were A Zombie, a fun-loving monster poetry for children ages four to eight. Notes for the Everlost is her first book for adults.

Advanced Praise:

“Highly recommended for anyone in the throes of grief, recent or past.”
Library Journal, starred review

“An emotional and thought-provoking mix of poetic prose, memories, and beliefs on death, loss, and grief.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Notes for the Everlost is the most beautifully written book I have read in ages, and a great deal more besides: comforting, and sad; full of riddles and wisdom; an unsparing map of grief, with its stubborn terrain and dark jokes and switchback heartbroken roads. This book is great company for terrible times.”
—Elizabeth McCracken, author of Thunderstruck & Other Stories

“Kate Inglis is a wise, flexible, and ultimately hopeful guide through the inhospitable country of mourning. She is also fierce—fiercely angry, fiercely funny and, most of all, fiercely loving.”
—Katherine Ashenburg, author of The Mourner’s Dance
