More Description

A "New York Times Book Review" Editors' Choice In the winter of 2000, shortly after his mother's death, Donald Antrim began writing about his family. In pieces that appeared in "The New Yorker" and were anthologized in "Best American Essays, " Antrim explored his intense and complicated relationships with his mother, Louanne, an artist, teacher, and ferociously destabilizing alcoholic; his gentle grandfather, who lived in the mountains of North Carolina and who always hoped to save his daughter from herself; and his father, who married his mother twice.
"The Afterlife" is an elliptical, sometimes tender, sometimes blackly hilarious portrait of a family--faulty, cracked, enraging--and of a man struggling to learn the nature of his origins.
