After Youd Gone by Maggie OFarrell

Alice Raikes takes a train from London to Scotland to visit her family, but when she gets there she witnesses something so shocking that she insists on returning to London immediately. A few hours later, Alice is lying in a coma after an accident that may or may not have been a suicide attempt. Alices family gathers at her bedside and as they wait, argue, and remember, long-buried tensions emerge. The more they talk, the more they seem to conceal. Alice, meanwhile, slides between varying levels of consciousness, recalling her past and a love affair that recently ended. A riveting story that skips through time and interweaves multiple points of view, After Youd Gone is a novel of stunning psychological depth and marks the debut of a major literary talent. Its the depiction of . . . deceptively small moments that is OFarrells winning gift. . . . Her absorbing characters gracefully circle one another round the room like moths at the light bulb, grazing their wings against lifes raw heat instead of being consumed by it. (The New York Times Book Review) After Youd Goneis beautifully written contemporary fiction. (Edna OBrien, The Sunday Times
