After the First Death is a hard-hitting, controversial look at Chile by award-winning journalist and poet Lake Sagaris.

This is an eyewitness account of breakdown and remaking of Chilean society, written in compellingly beautiful prose.

"After the First Death is an extraordinary product of [Sagaris's commitment to Chile], a thoroughly researched study of a nation in crisis." -- The Toronto Star
"[An] ambitious and deeply impressive book. Part personal memoir, part oral history, part prose poem, After the First Death manages to re-create the country as it was in the 1970s and 1980s: a police state, a land of throttling censorship and emergency rule." -- Quill & Quire
