Alice McDermott - After This

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of reading After This by Alice McDermott. I'm a little over halfway through, but I've been blown away by it, especially since McDermott brings faith so frequently into the story. If it keeps it up, I think this will displace Peace Like A River as my favourite novel I've read this year. Has anyone else read it? Or her other works?

He finds no mercy

And he's lost in the crowd

With an armoured heart of metal

He finds he's running out of odd-numbered daisies

From which to pull the petals
