Product Details


“Utterly authentic. . . . Afterwards [achieves] a coiling suspense driven more by psychology than by circumstance.” —The New York Times Book Review“Understated and offering no easy answers to the dilemmas it raises, Afterwards delves into how violence and trauma affect our ability to love. If relevance is what you look for in fiction, you need look no further. . . . Thought-provoking.” —Los Angeles Times “Like Pat Barker before her, Seiffert is examining the similar ways people protect themselves from heartbreak and their own bad deeds. It’s not that the personal is political, but in Seiffert’s eyes the historical is personal, too.” —Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel “Seiffert’s superb new novel is her most integrated and accomplished work yet.”—Financial Times
