Using words and pictures together to sharp effect, Last Things is the true story of how one family copes with the devastating effects of catastrophic illness. After returning home from a year abroad, Moss’s husband, Harvey, was diagnosed with ALS. The disease progressed quickly and Moss was soon consumed with caring for Harvey, while trying to keep life as normal as possible for her young children. This is not a story about the redemptive power of terminal illness, it is a story of resilience. It’s a story of how a family managed to survive a terrible loss and grow strong despite it. Last Things offers an intimate and profound window into heartbreak, helping us to grow in important ways — ultimately, we are transformed through the love and loss and art within its pages.
