It Last's Forever and Then It's Over is a spare, haunting, and hilarious debut novel, and the co-winner of the 2022 Novel prize. This is an absolutely thrilling and strange book that explores loss, grief, memory, adn the afterlife. We are beyond excited to have Anne de Marcken in the store!
"Her words and images take darkness from moment to moment and take light from moon to moon."
— Vi Khi Nao, author of Human Tetris and A Brief Alphabet of Torture
"Astounding, inventive, and utterly original, Anne de Marcken has written a freakish classic with wisdom to spare about life, death, and the eerily vast space between. I was absolute putty in this book’s hands."
— Alexandra Kleeman
