Overview

An irresistible tale about love and the theater, After Annie is an astonishing first novel. Herbie Aaron is half of a celebrity marriage. He and Annie have been famous—and nobodies—and through it all they've been passionate, if not always constant, lovers and fast friends. But when Annie dies of cancer, Herbie is lost. If you think this is going to be a tragic tale about grief, think again. Herbie is too cantankerous, sly, and charming to keel over. Enter Olive, a beautiful bartender who just might be a great actress; Herbie and Annie's neurotic daughter Candy, and a woman named Billy, the tough-talking golf pro who teaches Herbie more about his psyche than about his lousy swing. After Annie is a beautifully rendered novel about a man off the rails, battling through the wilderness days he hoped never to face alone. It is a novel that examines the ruthless passing of time with clarity, heart, and wry brilliance.
