Split Rock Review Photic Zone: An Interview with Andrea Gilats

An intensely moving and revelatory memoir of enduring and emerging from exceptional grief"I hope After Effects will be read by people who have suffered or are suffering from complicated grief, and by people who might know and love someone who is suffering. I hope it will be read by people who have lost a loved one or who will, inevitably, lose a loved one someday. I hope it will be read by people who counsel or minister to those who are grieving. I hope it will be read by people who are interested in and appreciate the necessity of a literature of loss.

"Empathy is the overriding theme of After Effects, so I hope it will be read by all who empathize with all of us who have lost a loved one to COVID-19. Our path forward is paved with empathy, so we must all try to understand what it feels like to walk in someone else’s shoes."
