Another Alice McDermott book here which illuminates a world gone. Alice McDermott in That Night and in Charming Billy has given me cause to doubt my existential prejudices. Some disdain it to high heaven, seeing only the insular aspects. It was far, far from insular- in fact quite the opposite in my experience. Perhaps the treeless, soulless streets of 1950's NYC suburbs provide material of general worth to ponder. As of now I am amazed at McDermott's ability to simply describe what the time and place were like.

So US author Alice McDermott’s eighth novel – in which there are several nuns .
The Ninth Hour opens with a suicide. Among the book’s most beautiful passages are those that concern the illicit sensuality she enjoys and her frank refusal of shame. The intimacies are more gestured towards than explained, in keeping with this world in which so much is unspoken. And then the long night with no one else in the apartmen. his book unfolds without sentimentality or pity, but with a frankness of gaze that elevates its characters.
This book is fantastic; definitely McDermott's best.
A Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award It is high summer, the early 1960s. This book is fantastic; definitely McDermott's best. Readers who compare it with the movie aren't really being fair, because the movie changes the end of the story completely, though I have to admit that if I hadn't seen the movie, I would never have read the book. First of all, as an English major and fellow writer, I have to say that the writing here is fantastic!
