Using her own life as a starting point, Rachel looks at the issues that arise for a woman in the years after she has lived the defining experiences of feminity. She writes about marriage, separation, motherhood, work, money, domesticity and love. Cusk considers the kinds of generational knowledge the contemporary woman harbours, the terrors or expectations that have been passed down to her and that are refracted through the modern transformation of female status. Aftermath is written in the personal/political mode that characterised A Life's Work, Cusk's acclaimed book about becoming a mother.

Beautifully written. Relishing the phrasing in this book. Cusk has the ability to be brutally honest with herself and the bravery to share this with the world. Not sure what has put the other reviewers off. This book is a find.

Infuriating, narcisstic, self-absorbed and clinical. Despite what she says, Cusk is not a feminist. Yes, she writes well and is intelligent, but to what end? Extremely disappointing.
