"...compelling and resonant in its own time, acquiring yet another layer of relevancy."
This exclusive Traingle Classics edition celebrates Jess Wells' extraordinary 1992 novel AfterShocks, in which a circle of women and men living in San Francisco confront their deepest fears after a major earthquake. How each of them come to terms with their past, present, and future -- and learn to love and live anew -- is altogether breathtaking to witness.
In light of the disorienting events of Sept. 11, 2001, this classic now takes on a striking level of potency. As Katherine V. Forrest notes in her new introduction to this edition, "AfterShocks is a novel written ten years ago whose time has fully come."
