Review quote

PRAISE FOR LIFE AFTER LIFE: "Kate Atkinson is a marvel. There aren't enough breathless adjectives to describe LIFE AFTER LIFE: Dazzling, witty, moving, joyful, mournful, profound. Wildly inventive, deeply felt. Hilarious. Humane. Simply put: It's one of the best novels I've read this century."--Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl
