In 'S Day' and Afterwards a fictional stroke victim shares her thoughts and feelings about language in general, her specific speech and language difficulties and the influence her condition has on her husband's life. The book's focus is feelings but readers will gain insights into stroke and brain damage and an increased understanding of normal and dysfunctional language. The author - a speech-language therapist - uses prose and poetry, fact and fiction to tell the story.
