Due to be released imminently (January 4th 2022 appears to be the most recent official date from the publisher and author), Tolkien, Enchantment, and Loss: Steps on the Developmental Journey by John Rosegrant is coming from Kent State University Press.

Focusing on the themes of enchantment and loss in the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, this unique study incorporates elements of developmental psychology to explore both Tolkien’s life and art, deepening our understanding of the interrelationship between his biography and writing.

It appears the book is still on pre-order on Book Depository. Have they released it in US or have they pushed back the release date ?

I’m not seeing it as available yet at any major retailer. I am guessing it is suffering from supply chain problems (sitting on a boat waiting to dock or similar).

I confirmed with Kent State University Press that it should be out there, and just checked - it is showing as available at some retailers now.

My Rosegrant arrived but I had to go East to pick up, worth the trip. One hairy spot when wandering but no bears or pumas just squirrels. The forest entrance looked a bit daunting but soon was less mirky. In the end I got a room and some Bears bheer. They did charge me for the key. I told them it was needed for the archive.
