The Almost Moon

by Alice Sebold
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (2008)

The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold A woman steps over the line into the unthinkable in this brilliant, powerful, and unforgettable new novel by the author of The Lovely Bones and Lucky.
Helen Knightly has spent a lifetime trying to win the love of a mother who had none to spare. And as this electrifying novel opens, she steps over a boundary she never dreamt she would even approach. But while her act is almost unconscious, it also seems like the fulfilment of a lifetime’s buried desire. Over the next twenty-four hours, her life rushes in at her as she confronts the choices that have brought her to this crossroads.

"Sebold writes brilliantly...The Almost Moon is a mature, salutary and timely novel."
(Helen Dunmore, The Times)
"Exhilarating, unforgettable... This is a remarkable novel in which every word is vital, each nuance felt...Candid, gut-wrenching, at times horribly funny and often beautifully touching...The genius which guides The Almost Moon is its absolute, horrible, multiple truths; its staggering clarity."
(Eileen Battersby, Irish Times )
