UP THE GOLDEN STAIR

This (not quite-- circa 60 pages) book length condolence begins ""My dear,"" ends with a sheaf of assorted poems on death, and is designed to help others who are bereft. (The Lighted Heart- 1960 -- dealt with another affliction, blindness.) ""Let your sorrow find its way out in tears""; remember, with Peter Pan, that ""To die must be an awfully big adventure""; find ways to convert the tragedy into a challenge, ""realize how much love there is still left,"" this is all part of a very modest message. You will either find it bathed in bathos, or, glowing with the kind of comfort which certain readers look for at this time.
