"The man is, understandably, sad and still somewhat lost. Despite his return to work immediately after her death, he says the loss still hits him when he least expects it."

Of the piece authored by Chiarella, visiting professor of creative writing at DePauw University and fiction editor for the magazine, Kelly adds, "The entire heartbreaking article is worth a read."
