Notes

Description
Elizabeth Connelly, an editor at a vanity press, feels as though she is sleepwalking through life.
Description
"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 deńouement, 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.
