Reading Recommendation: After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall, by Nancy Kress

Nancy Kress’s new novella, After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall is out now from Tachyon.  It’s a good read.  I got an advance peek at it, and I heard her read from it at a local reading earlier this year.  I’ve been waiting for it to be available so that I could blog about it.

This novella is good.  As in “I will remember it next award season” good.

Nancy uses a unique narrative structure that spans timelines.  As usual, the writing is impeccable, the characters interesting, and the story compelling and a bit haunting.
