1st ed.
Elizabeth Connelly sits in a New York office that looks like a real editor's, but isn't quite. Employed at a vanity press, Elizabeth watches the real world--of real struggles, passion, pain, and love--spin around her. Until one day, a young writer comes to her with a novel about a man who loves more than one woman at once. And suddenly Elizabeth will be awakened from her young urban professional slumber--by a man's real touch, by a real story in search of an ending, by the unraveling of the greatest masquerade of all--in Alice McDermott's luminous novel of memory, revelation, and desire.

display_description Elizabeth Connelly, an editor at a vanity press, feels as though she is sleepwalking through life. "The New York Times Bestselling Author of After This and Charming Billy. Elizabeth Connelly, editor at a New York vanity press, sells the dream of publication (admittedly, to writers of questionable talent). Stories of true emotional depth rarely cross her desk. But when a young writer named Tupper Daniels walks in, bearing an unfinished novel, Elizabeth is drawn to both the novelist and his story--a lyrical tale about a man in love with more than one woman at once. Tupper's manuscript unlocks memories of her own secretive father, who himself may have been a bigamist. As Elizabeth and Tupper search for the perfect denĖouement, their affair, too, approaches a most unexpected and poignant coda. A brilliant debut from one of our most celebrated authors, A Bigamist's Daughter is 'a wise, sad, witty novel about men and women, God, hope, love, illusion, and fiction itself' (Newsweek)"-- {u01C2}c Provided by publisher.
