After the WarLarge Print - 2001
After the War is Alice Adams' eleventh and final novel -- a brilliant coda to a brilliant career. It begins where her acclaimed novel A Southern Exposure ended: in the small Southern town of Pinehill during World War II, with the Baird family, transplanted Yankees who moved from Connecticut during the Depression to find a simpler world for themselves. But life has become more difficult since the beginning of the war: with Harry off in London and Abigail heading for college, Cynthia finds life complicated by her own loneliness, as well as a growing awareness of local racism and anti-Semitism.
