Frank and philosophical, gentle and brave, this grief thing F**KING sucks wanders the ghost town of grief, reaching out a hand to those it encounters along the way. Through clear-eyed prose and tender-hearted poetry, Taya Mikado relays her own grief journey, having lost at age thirteen her father to suicide, and at age eighteen her mother to a motorbike accident.

Acknowledging the subjectivity of grief, Mikado confidently engages in discourse around tough topics like suicide, mental health, grief, and resilience. Writing with humour and heart, her intention is to destigmatize grief, promote mental health awareness, and provide a comforting resource for others experiencing bereavement, especially young adults.
