"A stellar debut . . . about an unconventional family, fear, hatred, violence, chasing love, losing it and finding it again just when we need it most."--The New York Times Book Review "A wonder . . . This book] teems with real, Trinidadian life."--Claire Adam, award-winning author of Golden Child One of the Best Books of the Summer: Time - The Guardian - Goop - Women's Day - LitHubAfter Betty Ramdin's husband dies, she invites a colleague, Mr. Chetan, to move in with her and her son, Solo. Over time, the three become a family, loving each other deeply and depending upon one another. Then, one fateful night, Solo overhears Betty confiding in Mr. Chetan and learns a secret that plunges him into torment. Solo flees Trinidad for New York to carve out a lonely existence as an undocumented immigrant, and Mr. Chetan remains the singular thread holding mother and son together. But soon, Mr. Chetan's own burdensome secret is revealed, with heartbreaking consequences. Love After Love interrogates love and family in all its myriad meanings and forms, asking how we might exchange an illusory love for one that is truly fulfilling. In vibrant, addictive Trinidadian prose, Love After Love questions who and how we love, the obligations of family, and the consequences of choices made in desperation.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Ingrid PersaudPublisher: One WorldPublished: 08/04/2020ISBN: 9780593157565Pages: 336Weight: 1.30lbsSize: 9.00h x 6.30w x 1.30dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 01/27/2020Kirkus Reviews 02/01/2020Booklist 02/15/2020 pg. 28
