After the Sun Highlighted in Los Angeles Review of Books

The US edition of Jonas Eika’s critically praised short story collection After the Sun has been analyzed in Los Angeles Review of Books. Here is an excerpt:

After the Sun reveals the profound banality of speculative financial capitalism in action, highlighting how abstract financial derivatives can have tangible consequences on the lives, thoughts, and bodies of individuals. The collection depicts a postmodern capitalist hellscape that gradually unfolds through bodily interactions and impressions. This unique gaze models a politics of rendering the future unfamiliar, of inhabiting the realm of what is not yet realized, in order to keep it open for the possibilities yet to unfold.”

After the Sun was published by Riverhead in the US on August 24th, 2021.
