Len wrote “Leaving Grief Behind” as a way for him to deal with his own grief and help others work through theirs. It has received unanimous praise from adult men and women, senior citizens, widows and widowers alike. They emphatically speak of how Len’s “lurid emotional content” has helped them tell their own stories. Told from the male point of view, his story is unique in grief literature. The book became a centerpiece for a book club of those grieving from many forms of loss. Subsequently, divorcees, women who had miscarried and their partners, even those who had lost jobs, have found comfort from Len’s words.
