And be sure to check out Vetere’s compelling, insightful — and funny! — novel, The Writers Afterlife. Details here. Publishers Weekly says: “In this utterly unique story, novelist Vetere unfolds a caper of inter-dimensional scope. The scenes taking place in afterlife are written with classic magic-realist gusto; those taking place on earth will have readers rooting for Chillo’s success.” Check it out! Great for Spring!
