2000 Winner

Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize

for afterimage

Jury Citation

Afterimage is a splendid achievement: sophisticated, fascinating, beautifully done. Helen Humphreys draws us into a nineteenth-century world of photography, cartography and Victorian mores and holds us there, spellbound, by dint of a gripping tale about love and identity, by unusual characters, rich details and eloquent prose. Afterimage is magical, truly a winning book.” — 2000 Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize jury (Cynthia Holz, Janice Kulyk Keefer, and Peter Oliva)
