SIDELIGHTS:

Joseph M. Gallenberger told CA: "I write to clarify my own experince to myself, to share and to teach. I write about areas of life that are often not fully discussed and have strong impact on our emotions and sense of meaning. My book, Brothers Forever, came about as I reached for enlightened grieving after my brother's suicide. I write from the heart and yet aim for clear and wise insight into my topic."
