In this fiercely personal account of her battling the before, and surviving the after, of losing her husband to cancer, Carla Malden takes us on a journey through grief to gratitude that alerts the entire forever-young generation: this is not your mother’s widowhood. AfterImage is a story of love more than loss, memory more than sorrow, life more than death.

From the Inside Flap:

“Mrs. Starkman,” said the doctor, “sit down.”Ten months, three weeks later, my husband was dead.
I will say it right now, from the start, that the most I will be able to offer is this: For some inexplicable reason—at once miraculous and diabolical—the heart keeps beating even when it is irreparably broken.
 
The eye experiences an afterimage when a bright light is extinguished. But there are also afterimages of the heart, afterimages that remain imprinted well beyond the time a beloved has died. Carla and Laurence were high school sweethearts who married, worked as screenwriting partners, and delighted in their daughter. In this beautifully told, fiercely personal account, Carla Malden traces her journey, sharing how her world shifted with her husband’s cancer diagnosis and treatment, then crumbled with his death. How, in learning to fold his absence into her life, she has carried on.  An exploration of grief too soon, this book is, at its core, a love story, as all real stories of loss must be.

From the Back Cover:

The eye experiences an afterimage when a bright light is extinguished. But there are also afterimages of the heart, afterimages that remain imprinted well beyond the time a beloved has died. In this beautifully told memoir, Carla Malden shares her journey from the time of her husband’s cancer diagnosis through his death, to folding his absence into her life and carrying on.
