[Extract] Deborah Robertson's Careless is a novel full of death and loss. It should be a dark and daunting read, but it is not. Essentially it is an optimistic book which, while it explores the depths of grief and exposes a plethora of cultural inadequacies and cliches, still manages to convey an overall feeling of hope, a sense that grief can be endured and, eventually, survived.
