Shep Knacker has long saved for âThe Afterlifeâ: an idyllic retreat to the Third World where his nest egg can last forever. Traffic jams on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway will be replaced with âtalking, thinking, seeing, and beingââand enough sleep. When he sells his business for a cool million dollars, his dream finally seems within reach. Yet his wife Glynis has concocted endless excuses why itâs never the right time to go. Weary of working as a peon for the jerk who bought his company, Shep announces heâs leaving for a Tanzanian island, with or without her.
Just returned from a doctorâs appointment, Glynis has some news of her own: Shep canât go anywhere because she desperately needs his health insurance. But their policy only partially covers the staggering bills for her treatments, and Shepâs nest egg for The Afterlife soon cracks under the strain.
So Much for That follows the profound transformation of a marriage, and Shriver delivers a compelling novel that presses the question: how much is one life worth?
