About the Book

In his nonfiction book, An Infinity of Interpretations, Dr. Kimmons explores a simple thesis: “Life has no meaning except what we assign to it.”

In this new fiction book, After the Laughter, Dr. Kimmons continues exploration of that simple thesis, but in this book he writes about a young man’s existential quest to find meaning for his life, in part, through liaisons with women he encounters over several decades in various places at home and abroad.

As it often happens in life, he ultimately finds love and meaning for life in an unexpected place and at an unexpected time.

If you are intellectually alive and/or like romance books (with a lot of sex thrown in), you should read this novel about a search for joie de vivre and meaning in life, love, and sex.
