Stephane GersonDisaster Falls: A Family Story

Author's Website 

Stéphane Gerson’s memoir, Disaster Falls, is ironically the name of the area of Green River in Utah where his eight-year old son drowned during a family rafting trip.

The aftermath of this tragic loss is chronicled in an emotionally raw manner as Gerson grapples with how oppositely he and his wife mourn their son’s death, leading to their adamant determination to keep the marriage intact.

In his book, the NYU professor and cultural historian also explores society’s reactions to the death of a child.
