When You Lose What You Can't Live Without: Identity Death and Renewal in the Wake of Calamity is a concise, muscular yet poetic text addressing the sequence of calamity, identity death, life "in the wilderness," renewal and restoration -- an ordeal that most of us are obliged to encounter over the course of our lives (usually more than once). These stages are presented in the context of a novel theory of calamitous loss, presented as both unbidden and "bidden." For many, this difficult passage is being compounded by the crushing effects of an economy in peril. When You Lose... offers a road map, and a vision of hope, for all those who are encountering unanticipated rupture and loss, as these may arise in any area of life.
