On Grief: How to Help Friends in Mourning

Meghan O'Rourke discusses her book on grief, The Long Goodbye, and the findings of the survey on grief that she and Leeat Granek conducted and wrote about for Slate—and takes calls from listeners on advice for grievers.

Listeners: If you've dealt with loss, tell us what you wanted from your friends and family. What were the right things to say and do and what were the wrong things? Or if you're a friend of someone mourning, do you have questions about what to say and how to help? Give us a call 212-433-WNYC or comment here!
