  This book brings a set of complicated facts and emotions to our #MeToo moment. The narrator’s dead friend was a beautiful man with a BBC accent, a writer and teacher and womanizer.   Mourning for aunts, uncles, nephews, and nieces lasted three months — No crape, but plain black fabric with jet ornaments. Mourning for great aunts and great uncles lasted two months — Mourning was conducted without crape. Mourning for first cousins lasted six weeks — Three weeks was half mourning.
