Product Description


It is a truth universally acknowledged that an author in possession of a good story must be in want of an arresting first sentence. Alice Sebold s new novel, The Almost Moon, contains one of the best opening lines of any book published this year: When all is said and done, killing my mother came easily. It is eerily reminiscent of Albert Camus s L Etranger and certainly had me hooked from the start. --Evening Standard

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.


`Stirring' --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


`Carefully paced and powerfully written'

'as this clever and troubling work sets out to show...old age, dementia and death can be very funny'
