Afterlife and Narrative in Contemporary Fiction, Hardback Book

Afterlife and Narrative in Contemporary Fiction Hardback


Afterlife and Narrative explores why life after death is such a potent cultural concept today, and why it is such an attractive prospect for modern fiction.

The book mines a rich vein of imagined afterlives, from the temporal experiments of Martin Amis's Time's Arrow to narration from heaven in Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones .
