More About This Title After This


Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Australian Novelist Alice Nelson provides the introductory essay for After This, a powerful collection of narratives by fourteen Holocaust survivors. Alice worked closely with local survivors and their families to present each individual’s record of those terrible years – stories like that of Rosa Levy, whose tale of moving to Australia after the war is one of quiet triumph.


Alice Nelson is a Perth-born writer who has spent several years living and studying abroad. She studied creative writing at the University of Western Australia and in the renowned Master’s program at the City University of New York in Manhattan. Her award-winning short fiction has appeared in journals such as Southerly and Westerly and she has been awarded residential fellowships at the Dorset Writers’ Colony in Vermont and at Varuna, the Writer’s House in the Blue Mountains. She was the recipient of A T.A.G. Hungerford Award and was named Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Novelist for her first novel The Last Sky.
