The after life : a memoir
Stewart, Kathleen, 1958-2008
Books
Kathleen Stewart has published novels, short stories and poetry, yet nothing she has produced so far could have prepared readers for her memoir The After life. Centred on the author's experiences in her last year at school, which included drug addiction, a feverish love affair, a suicide attempt, and a mysteriously calm interlude in a psychiatric hospital, it also reaches both back and forward in an attempt to come to terms with her father's successful suicide and with the presence of her brilliant, charismatic and utterly self-absorbed mother.
