Alice McDermott’s dazzling novel, THE NINTH HOUR, turns on the contradictions that confound our need to become reconciled with mortality. The empathetic characters, at once agents and benefactors of Christian charity, grow to realize not just the grace but also the hubris, of their faith. A stunning work of generational storytelling that is compulsively readable and deeply thought provoking, McDermott is a master artisan of humanity.
