In this stunning memoir—a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and a Top Ten Book of the Year for the New York Times and numerous other sources—London economist Sonali Deraniyagala takes us through her harrowing personal aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which swept away her parents, her husband, and her sons.

"In rinsed-clear language, she describes her ordeal, surreal rescue, and deep shock, attaining a Didionesque clarity and power. We hold tight to every exquisite sentence as, with astounding candor and precision, she tracks subsequent waves of grief.... But here, too, are sustaining tides of memories that enable her to vividly, even joyfully, portray her loved ones."—Booklist
