From the Publisher

In this generous posthumous collection of her literary essays, Penelope Fitzgerald explores what John Milton called the ``life beyond life'' of writers-their afterlife in the hearts and minds of readers and in the imaginations of their critics and biographers. Here are a great novelist's brilliant introductions to Jane Austen's Emma and George Eliot's Middlemarch, and her quick-witted reviews of her fellow fiction writers (Brookner, Ishiguro, Amy Tan) and fellow biographers (Holroyd, Karl, Holmes). Here, especially, are extended explorations of ``minor'' writers-the authors of modest, over-looked, but fully achieved imaginative works. Rounded out by travel pieces, autobiography, and essays on the craft of fiction, The Afterlife is the most engaging book about books since Virginia Woolf's The Common Reader.
