I met Susan Minot briefly once, and she impressed me. Alas. This is not to say, however, that this book does not have value. It is well written-like a symphony assembled by an expert composer, but based on a melodramatic melody. The craft of construction is there; it is varied and rich and laden with layers of meaning. It withstands close scrutiny.

She was twenty-five. Forty years later -after three marriages and five children - Ann Lord finds herself in the dim claustrophobia of illness, careening between lucidity and delirium and only vaguely conscious of the friends and family parading by her bedside, when the memory of that weekend returns to her with the clarity and intensity of a fever-dream. Evening unfolds in the rushlight of that memory, as Ann relives those three vivid days on the New England coast, with motorboats buzzing and bands playing in the night, and the devastating tragedy that followed a spectacular wedding. Here, in the surge of hope and possibility that coursed through herat twenty-five - in a singular time of complete surrender - Ann discovers the highest point of her life.Superbly written and miraculously uplifting, Evening is a stirring exploration of time and memory, of love's transcendence and of its failure to transcend - a rich testament to the depths of grief and passion, and a stunning achievement.
