Summary
Afterlife and narrative in contemporary fiction 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 Amiss Times Arrow to narration from heaven in Alice Sebolds The Lovely Bones
