Product Details


“An aching awareness of mortality…suffuses every scene in Carol Muske-Dukes’ luminous new novel, which turns a tale of sudden loss into an astonishing meditation on love and bereavement.”

“Carol Muske-Dukes’s writing is filled with poignancy and humor, achieved through her understanding of what
it means to encounter death through the peculiar circumstance of being alive.”
—Steve Martin

“In her passionate novel Life After Death, Carol Muske-Dukes takes us right up against the edge where all lives end. Her prose is stunning, as always; and her fusion of grief and laughter and rage is extraordinary.”
—Ursula Hegi

“Daring and full of surprises, this story takes on the big questions and holds them up to the light, examining them, shifting them. We see life after death—and life before death—from many angles. In scenes rendered with crisp, lucid prose, we are given a range of perspectives on being human; some are recognizable and some are entirely new.”
—Elizabeth Strout
