New Release: And After The Fire

Harper Collins

It’s recommended summer reading from WQXR, in this year's Summer Reads For Music Lovers, and the New York Times recently interviewed Lauren Belfer about And After The Fire along with her husband, who has a new book, Bach & God.

Belfer’s novel is inspired by historical events, and features two women: one European and one American, with the mysterious choral masterpiece by Johann Sebastian Bach that changes both their lives.

Music Director John Clare recently spoke with Belfer about her new novel. The two talked about mixing mystery and music, the beauty of Bach, and how titles come about.

Belfer's website has an excerpt you can read from And After The Fire, plus links to music mentioned in the novel! Listen Friday mornings for book reviews with Nick Schenkel on WBAA and WBAA.org.
