Thomas Pierce - The Afterlives We absolutely loved Thomas Pierce’s thrillingly weird and wonderful story collection THE HALL OF SMALL MAMMALS in 2016. Now, Thomas brings that same wild, ground-breaking curiosity and boundless empathy to his debut novel THE AFTERLIVES. The novel follows the adventures of Jim Byrd after he dies, technically, from a freak cardiac event at 33…but only for a few minutes. Revived with no memory of an afterlife, Jim grapples with questions of what awaits us—or doesn’t—after we die. In his search for a machine that connects the living with the dead, he must contend with ghosts, holograms, mysterious particles that blip in and out of existence, and even the most unusual phenomenon of all: love. We know you’ll enjoy this exciting new voice in Southern fiction just as much as we have, so join us at 5:30 on Friday, January 19th.
