“Ridiculously good” (The New York Times)
author Thomas Pierce's debut novel is a funny, poignant
love story that answers the question: What happens after
we die? (Lots of stuff, it turns out).
Jim Byrd died. Technically. For a few minutes. The
diagnosis: heart attack at age thirty. Revived with no
memory of any tunnels, lights, or angels, Jim wonders
what--if anything--awaits us on the other side.
Then a ghost shows up. Maybe. Jim and his new wife,
Annie, find themselves tangling with holograms,
psychics, messages from the beyond, and a machine that
connects the living and the dead. As Jim and Annie
journey through history and fumble through faith, they
confront the specter of loss that looms for anyone who
dares to fall in love. Funny, fiercely original, and
gracefully moving, The Afterlives will haunt you.
In a good way.
