The New York Times best-selling 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).

    " The mian character is "executive editor" at a vanity publisher. She is also the daughter of a marriage that not exclusive on her father's part. What's real, what purpose to our delusions serve? Not McDermott's best (i loved "Charming Billy" and enjoyed "Child of My Heart"), but worth reading. "

    " Great read, McDermott is brilliant and it's fun finding her little easter eggs all over the book. Don't make this mistake of thinking this is an easy read - it's not meant to be. "

    " I liked this book the least of all her books. All the others were really good!!! "

    " I didn't finish this book. It was one of her early ones and as a writer, McDermott just gets better and better. I didn't think this was nearly as good as "Child of my Heart" or "After This" both of which have fuller characters and more inventive use of language. "
