Today Yesterday After My Death

Maureen Alsop


Today Yesterday After My Death is a hybrid novel that investigates our collective past, present, and future amid the violence of war. A terrestrial nocturne, it traces the celestial path of a glittering solar analemma. Traversing the merciless centuries of human battle through overlapping epochs and killing fields—the Byzantine Empire, the Crusades, The Battle on the Field of Abraham, World War I from the Great Retreat through the Battle of the Somme, and World War II—with a gaze fixed upon The Bourbaki Panorama, the human capacity for loss absolves, evolves, dissolves, and revolves. The book yields to an immeasurable blending of the world as a time without time, and time itself as a fragile, uneasy truce.
