What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right? Life After Life follows Ursula Todd as she lives through the turbulent events of the last century, over and over. Kate Atkinson, at her most profound and inventive, speaks to Caroline Baum. ‘Kate Atkinson’s new novel is a box of delights. Ingenious in construction, indefatigably entertaining . . . If you wish to be moved and astonished, read it’ (Hilary Mantel).
