On Consolation by Michael Ignatieff

Finding Solace in Dark Times // When we lose someone we love, when we suffer loss or defeat, when catastrophe strikes-war, famine, pandemic-we go in search of consolation. Recreating the moments when great figures found the courage to confront their fate and the determination to continue unafraid, this book takes those stories into the present, movingly contending that we can revive these traditions of consolation to meet the anguish and uncertainties of our precarious 21st century.
