Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] remarkable talent . . . In this compelling, suspenseful narrative, Morris speaks to larger issues while limning an unforgettable portrait of a vulnerable woman.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“A powerful, disconcerting, and heartbreaking story of a woman who is most dangerous to herself.” —
Library Journal
 
“With
Vanished and A Dangerous Woman, Ms. Morris established herself as a credible heir to Carson McCullers . . . a wise, unsentimental portraitist of the lonely, the damned, the desperate and the incomplete.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
Praise for Mary McGarry Morris
“One of our finest American writers.” —
The Miami Herald
 
“A superb storyteller.” —
The Washington Post
 

About the Author

Mary McGarry Morris grew up in Vermont and now lives on the North Shore in Massachusetts. Her first novel, Vanished, was published in 1988 and was nominated for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award. A Dangerous Woman (1991) was chosen by Time magazine as one of the “Five Best Novels of the Year” and was made into a motion picture starring Debra Winger, Barbara Hershey, and Gabriel Byrne. Songs in Ordinary Time (1995) was an Oprah’s Book Club selection, which propelled it to the top of the New York Times bestseller list for many weeks, and it was adapted for a TV movie starring Sissy Spacek and Beau Bridges. Morris’s other highly acclaimed works include the novels Fiona Range (2000), A Hole in the Universe (2004), The Lost Mother (2005), The Last Secret (2009), and Light from a Distant Star (2011), as well as the play MTL: The Insanity File.
