Description
For nearly three decades, cartoonist Victoria Roberts has been livening up the pages of The New Yorker with her witty and offbeat sense of humor. More than 200 of her delightful drawings illustrate this novel about a brilliantly eccentric family from New York's Upper East Side, headed by Pops, a millionaire inventor, and Mother, a mercurial socialite whose weapon of choice is a croquet mallet. Young Alan, our earnest and studious narrator, and his melodramatic little sister Alex love their parents but rely on the housekeeper and cook for a better sense of reality. Their odd but cozy existence is upended when Pops goes bust, and the next day the entire household—furniture, art, pug dogs, and everything else—moves to Central Park.

"A loopy, charming fantasy.... Part graphic novel, part extended New Yorker cartoon, After the Fall is more surreal than social realism.... With its echoes of Salinger's Glass family, as well as any in a Wes Anderson film, Alan's eccentric clan is memorably strange and winning."—Boston Globe
