Waterstones Says

With an unconventional family unit at its heart, Persaud’s novel explores the intricate connection between love and trust, and what happens to the former when the latter is disrupted. 

Winner of the Costa First Novel Award 2020

'Restless, heart-breaking and intensely spellbinding, Love after Love will stay with you long after the last page.' - Andre Aciman

Meet the Ramdin-Chetan family: forged through loneliness, broken by secrets, saved by love. Irrepressible Betty Ramdin, her shy son Solo and their marvellous lodger, Mr Chetan, form an unconventional household, happy in their differences, as they build a home together.

Home: the place where your navel string is buried, keeping these three safe from an increasingly dangerous world. Happy and loving they are, until the night when a glass of rum, a heart to heart and a terrible truth explodes the family unit, driving them apart.

Brave and brilliant, steeped in affection, Love After Love asks us to consider what happens at the very brink of human forgiveness, and offers hope to anyone who has loved and lost and has yet to find their way back.

“Lovely characters”

I was quite shocked to read there was still so much prejudice against gays in Trinidad. The story is told with the cadence of speech and dialect words of the island, which add to its charm. The characters are... More
