After The War

December 2023
1min read

I can’t tell you how pleased I was to see that you had included Richard Marius’s After the War in your “Editors’ Choice” (December). I had reviewed it for our local paper, calling it “one of the great contemporary novels,” and was prepared to see it widely praised and selected on many best-books-of-theyear lists. But except for a good review in The New York Times , it was virtually ignored. I still think it’s a remarkably good novel and hope your mention will help push it back to a recognition as one of our best depictions of the American experience. And it’s nice to know that I wasn’t the only one who liked it.

We hope you enjoy our work.
