"A subtle book that lingers in the mind... Here is a writer of very considerable power".
An academic sits alone in his college room thinking about the people he has lost. Powerful memories crowd in on him -- childhood days in Paris; his exuberant, glamorous mother; his mysterious father; and the brash young American who becomes his step-father. Mingled with this emerges a tender portrait of his relationship with his actress wife. Ever After is a poignant elegy to lost faith and lost hope. It is also a powerful affirmation of love.
