Afterworld, a multi-layered, multi-character, multi-generational saga is set, in part, in Louisiana in the days leading up to Hurricane Katrina. It is a fascinating, complex, and extraordinary feat of imagination that propels the reader through territory that few, if any, novels have traversed. Besides the protagonist, Theodore Faulkner Duvalier, we meet four generations of the Duvalier family for whom sugar cane is both their blessing and their curse. Revealed are the secrets that the Duvaliers would do anything to keep hidden; blown apart by the winds of Katrina and the unearthly powers that play with their lives. Filled with unforgettable characters, unimaginable beauty and terrible tragedy, Afterworld is a book to remember.
