Some brief overview of book

The three children of an Irish-American family in Long Island are witnesses to the cycles of dissatisfaction, bitterness and recurring affection that make up the lives of their extended family. A tender, sad and funny book from the author of the National Book Award-nominated That Night and Charming Billy eaking, and Kirkus Reviews called it a softly resonant and nostalgic tale told masterfully. Her first novel, A Bigamists Daughter (1982), was published to wide acclaim.

That Night (1987), her second novel, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. In his cover review for The New York Times Book Review, David Leavitt called That Night an original, a work that revels in a rich, discursive prose style that belongs entirely to Alice McDermott. A film version of That Night was produced by Warner Bros. and released in the spring of 1992.

At Weddings and Wakes (1992), her third novel, became a New York Times bestseller. Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times praised McDermotts rich, supple prose and Bruce Bawer called At Weddings and Wakes a haunting and masterly work of literary art in his review for The Wall Street Journal. McDermott received her B.

A. in 1975 from the State University of New York at Oswego, and her M. A. in 1978 from the University of New Hampshire. She has taught at the University of California at San Diego and American University, has been a writer-in-residence at Lynchburg and Hollins Colleges in Virginia, and was lecturer in English at the University of New Hampshire.

Her short stories have appeared in Ms., Redbook, Mademoiselle, and Seventeen. The recipient of a Whiting Writers Award, McDermott is currently writer-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with her husband, a neuroscientist, and three children.
