Inhaltsangabe: Three grown children--two sisters and a brother--in an Irish-American family witness the cycles of dissatisfaction, bitterness, and affection that make up the lives of their extended family. By the author of That Night. 35,000 first printing.
Rezension: Telling a story through the eyes of children is a tricky business, which is that much more proof of what a magician Alice McDermott happens to be. At Weddings and Wakes, her engrossing portrayal of love and tragedy in an Irish-Catholic family, takes us along with the kids as they accompany their mother on weekly visits to a world of memory and recrimination in the family's old Brooklyn neighborhood. An exquisitely executed little novel that masks all its hard work and complex structure behind finely wrought lace curtains of craft.
