Published: Hogarth - February 4th, 2014

"A flash in the heavens that makes you look up and believe in miracles... Here, in fresh, graceful prose, is a profound story that dares to be as tender as it is ghastly, a story about desperate lives in a remote land that will quickly seem impossibly close and important... I haven't been so overwhelmed by a novel in years. At the risk of raising your expectations too high, I have to say you simply must read this book." – Nancy

"Kate Atkinson is a marvel. There aren't enough breathless adjectives to describe Life After Life. Dazzling, witty, moving, joyful, mournful, profound. Wildly inventive, deeply felt. Hilarious. Humane. Simply put: It's one of the best novels I've read this century." – Nancy

Availability: Backordered
Published: Ballantine Books - January 23rd, 2018

"

That rare debut that grabs the reader by the lapels with both hands and never lets go. It's compelling, brooding, atmospheric, and propulsive and it accomplishes something frightening and unique: a portrayal of the great outdoors as beautiful, amoral, and claustrophobic at the same time. It will stay with you long after you read the last page, and it may very well haunt your dreams." – Nancy
