Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A provocative and enchanting story from the author of the bestselling "Charming Billy", which won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1998. This is a wonderful novel revealing a world seen afresh through the eyes of an utterly seductive girl. Tie-in publication with two backlist titles, "A Bigamist's Daughter" and "That Night". "McDermott's elegant, understated prose slips down like a cool, refreshing drink" "Sunday Telegraph"

Synopsis:

Infused with suppressed passion, disappointment, and enduring hope, Alice McDermott's novel reveals a world seen afresh through the eyes of a 15-year-old girl.

Synopsis:

Alice McDermott's haunting new work is told in the the voice of a beautiful girl. At fifteen, she's everybody's favorite, but there's a decidedly solitary, pensive side to her personality as well. While favorite cousin Daisy's arrival for summer vacation portends an idyllic rite of passage, the narrator's sharply insightful tale reveals the dark undercurrents of disappointment and repressed desire that swirl beneath the surface.
