After This by Alice McDermott--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Alice McDermott's novel After This, narrated by Martha Plimpton. This powerful novel wittily captures the social, political and spiritual upheavals of the mid-twentieth century through the story of a family, and the changing world in which they live. While Michael and Annie Keane taste the alternately intoxicating and bitter first fruits of the sexual revolution, their older, more tentative brother lags behind, until he finds himself on the way to Vietnam.
