Alice McDermott is a great writer. She has proved that fact many times by the many novels she has written after A Bigamist's Daughter which was her initial work. This book had several memorable passages telling us about the mythologies of love that we all might succumb to in one way or another. It also reveals a heartless con-artist with a romantic heart, if that makes any sense.

A Bigamist's Daughter is Alice McDermott's first book. Even though I read it in less than 24 hours I thought it was wildly imaginative and thought-provoking. while the title sounds impressive she knows she's not fooling herself. In fact, the central theme of A Bigamist's Daughter is all about false impressions. Her father, never home, always leaving for somewhere (or someone?) else, is perceived to be a bigamist

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 dénouement, 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).
