Part memoir, part fiction, A Grief Sublime begins at the moment the author learns of the sudden death in a car accident of her husband of 30 years, Steve "Sproutman" Meyerowitz.
Ricocheting between the splintered past and the present, in her grief, Robbins enters into conversation with Keats and Whitman, Melville and Dickinson.
"My poets, as I began to call them, offered me solace. They spoke to meaning and purpose."
Beautifully read by award-winning narrator Karen Allen with James Warwick as the voice of the poets, Beth Robbins' lyrical, powerful story takes us with her as her despair transcends into a hopeful new experience of life. And a recognition of the love that remains after death.
The true events of A Grief Sublime are being adapted into a short film directed by Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade.
Exclusive to Audible, the audiobook is followed by an interview with Karen Allen, Beth Robbins, and audiobook producer Alison Larkin.
