    'of the loss of'

    Is there any way I can make my sentence sound better? I keep using of twice and I'm not sure if there's a better way to express this:

    In "Death of a Pig", E.B. White presents a story of the loss of a pig close to him.

    You could use "...a story about the loss of a pig..."
