de Kretser is a master of immersive detail; she tells her story as much through a series of intimately recalled, gorgeously memorable images as she does her charming cast of characters
The Life to Come weaves together the loosely connected lives of characters, roaming widely across the globe (from Australia to France to Sri Lanka) and between the present and memories of shared (and hidden) pasts
The Life to Come is peppered with delightfully smart and funny observations about culture, human behavior and relationships, while remaining sensitive to resonant issues like immigration, class, and women's critical reception in the arts
A strong choice for libraries, book clubs, and reading groups; ideal for National Reading Group Month
Catapult published de Kretser's novella, Springtime, in Spring 2016, to critical acclaim in the NYTBR, Star Tribune, Toronto Star, and more; we expect similar critical attention for her new novel
