Talking about grief is always complex and with many clichés, but Joan describes it realistically and yet with a sensitive look of those who actually understand and went throughall the stages in this process.


"The magical thought of the title refers to the recurring expectation that John would return at any time."







In her statement, Joan says that she wrote about the suffering "because no one had explained to me what it was." Her work has always been a way of coping, "a way of understanding the things that give us fear the most," as she said. And so he ended up creating a masterpiece about mourning and acclaimed by those who read.
