"AFTERWORD offers up every literary treat imaginable: a wildly inventive plot that keeps you turning pages, characters who steal your heart, big ideas that engage your mind, and gorgeous prose that delights your senses. I'm a big fan of Nina Schuyler and this is her best book yet!"

"Schuyler's prose is beautifully elegant and understated, with every detail made to count in weaving a rich emotional tapestry."

Catherine Brady, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction
