The conflict is that Eric and Lori both look for the same thing in a relationship, "Tenderness" but they are both destructive in their own ways.

At the end of After the first death, the son is not talking to the father. Ben dies from everything that happens and that is the Father narrating through Ben. The father is in a mental institution because of Ben dying. He is living with the guilt and blaming himself that ben is dead and he is "haunted" now by his son and the events that surrounded his death. He goes crazy at the end where "ben" wont leave. but its really him in his own mind. Sort of a schkitzofrenic.

This author wrote such good books in his lifetime. I love his 'chocolate' books.
