Beginning with Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, in this course we will read and examine contemporary stories that explore the terrain of consequence. We’ll consider why writers find aftermath such fertile territory for stories and how they use it unsettle and provoke readers. In response, we’ll practice writing critical and comparative analyses of our readings, work on a more purposeful process of revision as we develop our writing, and conclude with an opportunity to write our own creative tales using aftermath as a springboard to provoke and unsettle our own readers.

Possible readings include The Road by Cormac McCarthy, The Sweet Hereafter by Russell Banks, Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, selections from The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion and The Beauty of the Husband by Anne Carson, Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee, and In The Lake of The Woods by Tim O’Brien.
