is a collection of 10 narratives based on real life experiences of loss from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and developmental phases of life. It is unique, compared to books based on stages and phases of grief, as it allows us to better understand the idiosyncratic and often mysterious grief process.

The Regulator welcomes New York Times bestselling author Daniel Wallace (Big Fish) for a reading and booksigning of his newest book, Extraordinary Adventures: A Novel.
Edsel Bronfman works as a shipping clerk for an importer of Korean flatware. He lives in a seedy neighborhood and spends his free time with his spirited mother. Things happen to other people, and Bronfman knows it. Until, that is, he gets a call telling him that he's won a free weekend at a beachfront condo in Destin, Florida. But there's a catch: the offer is intended for a couple, and Bronfman has only 79 days to find someone to take with him.
The phone call jolts Bronfman into motion, initiating a series of truly extraordinary adventures as he sets out to find a companion for his weekend getaway. Open at last to the possibilities of life, Bronfman now believes that anything can happen. And it does.
