9781616203221: Life After Life: A Novel

Award-winning author Jill McCorkle takes us on a splendid journey through time and memory in this, her tenth work of fiction. Life After Life is filled with a sense of wonder at our capacity for self-discovery at any age. And the residents, staff, and neighbors of the Pine Haven retirement center (from twelve-year-old Abby to eighty-five-year-old Sadie) share some of life’s most profound discoveries and are some of the most true-to-life characters that you are ever likely to meet in fiction. Delivered with her trademark wit, Jill McCorkle’s constantly surprising novel illuminates the possibilities of second chances, hope, and rediscovering life right up to the very end. She has conjured an entire community that reminds us that grace and magic can―and do―appear when we least expect it.

From the Back Cover:

“Great writing, poignancy, humor, wisdom―all are in abundance here.”*

Award-winning novelist Jill McCorkle takes us on a journey through time and memory as the residents of a close-knit community demonstrate that grace and magic can―and do―appear when we least expect them. From twelve-year-old Abby to eighty-five-year-old Sadie, they prove our capacity for self-discovery, second chances, and hope―at any age.

“Illuminating, reassuring, and enlarging our understanding of the crossing from this world to the next, her novel sings with the mystical, the magical and the fragility of this thing called life.” ―The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“McCorkle’s masterful microcosm invokes profound sadness, harsh insight and guffaws, often on the same page.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Great . . . Sharply real.” ―Entertainment Weekly

“Clever, bighearted, and wise.” ―Vanity Fair

“The elderly residents of Pine Haven live and yearn and challenge one another with an exuberance that jumps off the page.” ―The New York Times

“This is grown-up fun. Deep pleasure for smart people. And it is beautiful all the way.” ―Richard Bausch, author of Peace

“A powerful gift for dialogue has always animated Jill McCorkle’s fiction, and here we hear some astonishing voices . . . As readers, we feel honored to witness their passages.” ―The Boston Globe

“A story and characters that readers won’t soon forget.” ―Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Jill McCorkle is one of the South’s greatest writers; she is also one of America’s.” ―*Ron Rash, author of Nothing Gold Can Stay
