Grief Is for People (6 hours) is a dual story of loss from the perspective of author and audiobook narrator Sloane Crosley. In 2019, in quick succession, Crosley’s home in New York City was burglarized and her best friend, Russell, whom she had known and worked with for decades, died by suicide. In the months that follow, the two tragedies meld together in Crosley’s mind, and she pursues the recovery of her stolen items with the fervor of someone trying to bring back the dead. Crosley’s narration is frank and articulate, a perfect complement to the wit and candor of her prose. Grief Is for People is Crosley’s personal story of processing, broken into five sections mirroring the five stages of grief. However, this memoir is also an homage to Russell, to his brilliance and nuance, his talent and his legacy and the gaping hole left behind by his death.
