Title: "Afterlife" by Donald Denoon. [review - radio script]
Authors: Dooley, Gillian Mary

Citation: Dooley, Gillian 2004. Review of "Afterlife" by Donald Denoon. 'Writers’ Radio, Radio Adelaide', broadcast on 4 October 2004.
Abstract: It’s an old idea that the gods envy humans their mortality, with all its possibilities of ecstasy and intense experience. Donald Denoon plays with this idea in his novel "Afterlife", subtitled "A Divine Comedy". "Afterlife" is a genial, philosophical book. The hero, Geoffrey Kingston, dies and goes to heaven. Both these facts are unexpected: he is in the prime of life, and his conduct hasn’t been such that he expected to end up in heaven. But then, he didn’t think that heaven existed.
