9780061894473: Life After Yes: A Novel

“[A] funny and a wickedly accurate picture of the life of a particular breed of Manhattanites—and it’s also thought-provoking and deeply moving.”
—Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project


A young woman deals with the aftermath of her father’s death while she struggles to commit to a future with her fiancÚ in Life After Yes, the poignant, wry, and very accomplished debut novel from Aidan Donnelley Rowley. A story of hope and light in the darkness in the bestselling vein of Juliette Fay, Cecilia Ahearn, and Jacqueline Sheehan, newcomer Rowley has captured all the angst and pain of truly becoming an adult, and has done so with unusual heart and grace, inspiring Julie Buxbaum to rave, “Her flawed and complex characters will stick with you long after Life After Yes’s final pages.”

From the Back Cover:

"Music plays. Dad appears. I walk with him, eyes fastened to the floor. When I look up, something is very wrong. There are three grooms."

This is the story of Quinn—born Prudence Quinn O'Malley—a confused young Manhattan attorney who loses her father on that tragic September morning that changed everything. Now, at an existential crossroads in her life, Quinn must confront impossible questions about commitment and career, love and loss. Her idealistic beau desperately wants a wedding, and whisks her away to Paris just to propose. But then Quinn has a dream featuring judges and handcuffs and Nietzsche and Britney . . . and far too many grooms. Suddenly, her future isn't so clear. Quinn's world has become a minefield of men—some living, some gone, and traversing it safely is going to take a lot more than numerous glasses of pinot grigio.

Life After Yes is a blisteringly honest, thoroughly modern tale of life and love in chaos, marking the arrival of a truly exciting new voice in contemporary fiction.
