Critical Praise

"Rowley skillfully dissects the myth of having it all in this unputdownable late coming of age story set in rarefied Manhattan. Her flawed and complex characters will stick with you long after Life After Yes’s final pages since they are all too human as they struggle with love and loss."

—J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Commencement

"A must-read modern love story for any woman wondering which man, and which direction, is the right one."

Tatiana Boncompagni

"A resounding yes! to Life After Yes --- a novel that explores, with charm and humor, life after loss. Readers will root for its endearing narrator, Quinn, as she confronts the road not taken and navigates the conflicting and complicated intersections of head and heart."

"Aidan Donnelley Rowley’s compelling debut novel Life After Yes is funny, and a wickedly accurate picture of the life of a particular breed of Manhattanites – and it’s also thought-provoking and deeply moving."

—Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
