After Life

(2000)
A novel by

 

"After Life is that rarest of wonders, a book that is both exquisitely written and a thrill to read."
Ann Patchett


Evocative, suspenseful and beautifully written, After Life introduces a truly original voice, utterly contemporary, but also a true storyteller in the classic sense.

So begins After Life, a psychological suspense tale, set in a place that is a world of its own, out of time, and almost off the map. Born in New Orleans, Naomi Ash is raised by her mother, a medium who has schooled Naomi in parlor-trick quackery and the various methods used to tell customers what they most need to hear. A little magic, a little theatre, a little bending of the letter of the law lead mother and daughter to relocate hastily to Train Line--a strange, tiny hamlet of shabby, gingerbread-frilled cottages; card readers; table-levitators; low-rent "Psychic Faires" at the local Holiday Inn, and of course, "The Mother Galina Psychic Hour" (Naomi's mother's own radio enterprise).

In this environment, Naomi Ash comes of age; comes to terms with her own nascent spiritual gifts--and begins to distinguish what might be her own true vision from fakery and fraud. Then a young graduate student, Peter Morton, blows into town. And Naomi falls in love.
