The Ninth Hour

Alice McDermottPublisher: Farrar Straus & Giroux , New York , 2017
ISBN:9780374280147 Classification: FicMcD

"In this enveloping, emotionally intricate, suspenseful drama, McDermott lures readers into her latest meticulously rendered Irish American enclave. . . Like Alice Munro, McDermott is profoundly observant and mischievously witty, a sensitive and consummate illuminator of the realization of the self, the ravages of illness and loss, and the radiance of generosity. . . McDermott’s extraordinary precision, compassion, and artistry are entrancing and sublime. . . This is one of literary master McDermott’s most exquisite works." ¯Donna Seaman, Booklist, starred review
