Reflections on Love, Grief, and Small BoatsBook - 2012
A meditation on the stages of grief documents the period after the wrenching death of the author's adult daughter and describes a kayak journey he took years later that metaphorically represented his journey of loss and healing.
“There is indeed life after death, and Rosenblatt proves that without a doubt.”
From Roger Rosenblatt, the bestselling author of Making Toast and Unless It Moves the Human Heart, comes a poignant meditation on the nature of grief, the passages through it, the solace of solitude, and the healing power of love. Rosenblatt’s Kayak Morning is a classic in the making, akin to A Grief Observed by C. S. Lewis—a coming to terms with tragic, senseless loss that offers readers an unsentimental and deeply moving account of the possibility of true redemption. A profoundly beautiful and intimate gift from an exceptional writer, Kayak Morning is Roger Rosenblatt writing bravely and unforgettably from the heart.
A poignant meditation on the stages of grief by the award-winning author of Making Toast documents the period after the wrenching death of his adult daughter and describes a kayak journey he took years later that metaphorically represented his journey of loss and healing.

I sometimes feel that death is contagious, that I could pollute others with my sorrow. It is a lot to ask of people to add your despair to their own. Because my friends love me, they understand and forgive my deposed state of mind. I recognize the kindness in their eyes. When they suffered deaths in the family, I saw the gauze over their faces. Now they see mine.
