#1656: Julia Alvarez's "Afterlife" | The Book Show







/

“Afterlife” is the first adult novel in almost 15 years by Julia Alvarez, the bestselling author of In the “Time of the Butterflies” and “How the García Girls Lost Their Accents.” “Afterlife” is a compact, yet deeply felt novel that speaks to grief, a broken society; and makes us question what we owe each other, ourselves, and the community.
