An ordinary life --- its sharp pains and unexpected joys, its bursts of clarity and moments of confusion --- lived by an ordinary woman: this is the subject of SOMEONE, Alice McDermott’s extraordinary return, seven years after the publication of AFTER THIS. Scattered recollections --- of childhood, adolescence, motherhood and old age --- come together in this transformative narrative, stitched into a vibrant whole by McDermott’s deft, lyrical voice.
