Résumé : Praise for What Comes After : Named a Best New Book of the Spring by Parade , Good Housekeeping , Bustle and more! “If you enjoyed  The Searcher  by Tana French, read  What Comes After  by JoAnne Tompkins.… a mystery — and a gritty meditation on loss and redemption, drenched in stillness and grief.”  — The Washington Post “Nail-biting wallop of a debut novel. . . Tompkins delivers a thoughtful, unexpectedly optimistic tale.” — The New York Times “This debut vibrates with mystery. Why would a teen kill his friend, then himself? Why does the victim’s dad take in a pregnant stranger? As the dots slowly connect, the characters reveal their complex humanity and help us touch our own.” – People Magazine “ What Comes After  is equal parts thrilling mystery and aching examination of grief and guilt.” – TIME    “[A] story about forgiving the unforgivable, gaining new family, and hope.” – s hondaland   “ What Comes After is a poignant and suspenseful debut novel about the tensions of love, anger, courage, forgiveness and everything in between…unforgettable…an impressive debut by an author who is clearly here to stay.” – Book Reporter   “This novel of individual reflection and anguish ultimately resurrects the prospect of hope.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “Atmospheric, propulsive... a grieving community grapples with two slain teenaged boys and the young pregnant girl who may hold the key to the their tragic fates. An American Tana French, Tompkins is a writer to watch.”  — O, The Oprah Magazine “Like Anne Tyler and Marilynne Robinson, who explore similar territories of the heart, Tompkins sensitively portrays her characters’ pain, isolation, and hard path to redemption. A graceful debut.” — Kirkus “In JoAnne Tompkins’ debut novel, faith is simply part of life, a reality that is rarely so sensitively portrayed in fiction.” — BookPage “Deftly handled… readers coming to know [the characters] almost better than they know themselves... exceptional literary thriller.” —STARRED REVIEW,  Booklist “While there’s mystery at the heart of this book, Tompkins creates a relatable thrill with reflections on suffering, loss, anger and the powerful effects of forgiveness.” – Parade   “At once a mystery and a meditation on how to move forward in the wake of a tragedy, What Comes After by Joanne Tompkins is a moving tale of two parents grappling after the sudden deaths of their teenage sons.” —Popsugar “[A] moving portrait of resilience.” —Oprah Daily   “[A] reflective tale of grief and redemption.” — E! Online "What I loved most about What Comes After is the way the characters—in the wake of a great tragedy—quietly, kindly reach out to one another. The loss of two teenage boys forces the characters to face truths about the boys, and therefore themselves. JoAnne Tompkins writes about the people in this small town with wisdom and grace, and I’m grateful to have read this novel." —Ann Napolitano, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Edward “ What Comes After is a tender, wise debut, both grave and hopeful. In telling the story of the violent act that rocks a small community—and what emerges from the ashes—JoAnne Tompkins explores responsibility and forgiveness, connection and loss, the families we’re born into and the ones we create.  What Comes After asks whether we are inevitably shaped by the wounds we inherit—and the ones we give ourselves—or whether transformation, and redemption, are possible.” —Chloe Benjamin, New York Times - bestselling author of The Immortalists <...
