Presenting the evocative cover image for Rhidian Brook’s The Aftermath, out from Viking this May, and the bombed-out wreckage of Hamburg in 1945 which give the book its setting.
We have advance praise already from three great writers: Sadie Jones says: ‘The Aftermath is a compelling, surprising and moving novel.’
Claire Messud calls it ‘unsettling and compelling, suffused with suffering and, mercifully, some hope’ and Joseph O’Neill says ‘A moving, always enthralling journey into the dark and light of history. Rhidian Brook has written a brilliant novel.’
We have some bound proofs on hand for the lucky first five to reblog.
