9781938126222: After

Nina Baldwin's perfect life unravels after she is diagnosed with breast cancer. As she struggles to remain a good wife and mother, her husband retreats into harrowing memories of his childhood in a family of Nazi sympathizers, and her awkward, extraordinary daughter sinks further into pre-teen misery. Isolated and afraid, Nina seeks escape in places she never imagined she would.

Kristin Waterfield Duisberg has taught creative writing at Boston University and the Boston-based Grub Street Writers' Workshop. After is her second novel; she is also the author of the critically acclaimed book, The Good Patient (St. Martin's Press).

About the Author:

Kristin Waterfield Duisberg received her undergraduate degree from Bowdoin College and her master’s degree in creative writing from Boston University. She has taught creative writing at Boston University and the Boston-based Grub Street Writers’ Workshop and worked as a writer for J.P Morgan, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the University of New Hampshire. Having spent most of her life in New England, she returned recently to the seacoast New Hampshire college town where she grew up, where she lives with her husband, two children, and two exceedingly hairy golden retrievers. After is her second novel; she is also the author of the critically acclaimed book, The Good Patient (St. Martin’s Press).

Review:

"In her sophomore novel, Duisberg again proves herself to be a keen and perceptive observer of human frailty, capable of handling thorny emotional topics with a deft and incisive touch." Booklist

It’s rare I love a novel as much as Kristin Waterfield Duisberg’s After. Duisberg charts her characters’ emotional landscapes so intimately that you’re still living in them long after this exquisitely written, extraordinarily moving book is closed.” Jenna Blum, New York Times and internationally bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers

In this brave and compulsively readable novel, Kristin Waterfield Duisberg gives us three characters fighting for their lives. From the harrowing first page, we root for Nina, Martin, and Audrey not only to survive long into the after, but to come through better than they were before. This is a surprising and unsentimental book, an intimate and unflinching look at a family haunted by the past and wrestling with an uncertain future.” Christopher Castellani, author of All This Talk of Love

Finely written and richly detailed, Kristin Duisberg’s After is a worthy story of secrets and second chances that kept me turning the pages.” Daphne Kalotay, author of Sight Reading and Russian Winter
