In Life After Life, Costa Book Award winner Kate Atkinson followed Ursula Todd as she lived through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. In this sequel—named a Best Book of 2015 by the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and NPR—Atkinson chronicles the same period through Ursula's younger brother Teddy, a would-be poet, heroic pilot, husband, father, and grandfather who somehow failed to die in World War II.

"Atkinson isn't just telling a story: she's deconstructing, taking apart the notion of how we believe stories are told.... She makes us feel the power of storytelling not as an intellectual conceit, but as a punch in the gut."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
