              In the early nineteenth century there was once a place called Dogtown. Located on a rocky outcrop, of Massachusetts Bay, it was a miserable place really, a motley collection of people who had nowhere else to go. Yet the end of a village, even one as poor and small as Dogtown, is ...not an altogether trivial thing.

              Anita Diamant's knowledge, sensitivity, and clarity have made her one of the most respected writers of guides to Jewish life. In Saying Kaddish, she shows how to make Judaism's time-honored rituals into personal, meaningful sources of comfort. Diamant guides the reader through Je...wish practices that attend the end of life, from the sickroom to the funeral to the week, month, and year that follow. There are chapters describing the traditional Jewish funeral and the customs of Shiva, the first week after death when mourners are comforted and cared for by community, friends, and family. She also explains the protected status of Jewish mourners, who are exempt from responsibilities of social, business, and religious life during Shloshim, the first thirty days. And she provides detailed instructions for the rituals of Yizkor and Yahrzeit, as well as chapters about caring for grieving children, mourning the death of a child, neonatal loss, suicide, and the death of non-Jewish loved ones.

              An excellent novel. A lovely and moving portrait of society's outcast living in an unforgiving and barren but harshly beautiful landscape. New York Times Book Review In the early nineteenth century there was once a place called Dogtown. Located on a rocky outcrop at the northernm...ost boundary of Massachusetts Bay, it was a miserable place really, less a village than a motley collection of people who had nowhere else to go. Yet the end of a village, even one as poor and small as Dogtown, is not an altogether trivial thing. With a sure and delicate touch, Anita Diamant shares compelling secrets and sadnesses, interweaving the lives of the mysterious black African woman Ruth, who dresses as a man; the child Sammy, who arrived in Dogtown with a note attached to his coat; the touching and tender love story of Judy Rhines and Cornelius; and presiding over all, the benign and diminutive Easter Carter, host of what passes as the local tavern. The Last Days of Dogtown vividly brings to life an unforgettable community of eccentrics and misfits - the forgotten people of the New World who live on the fringes of polite society. With great depth of feeling, Diamant shows us the essential humanity of these quiet, small lives, lived in that harsh, windswept landscape and under that bright sky. There will be much celebration when Anita Diamant's fans discover this gem on the shelves of their favourite bookstore.
