Author Info
Mary Gordon
Mary Gordon, an only child, was raised a devout Catholic. Her B.A. is from Barnard, and she has an M.A. in writing from Syracuse University (1973). Her first novel, "Final Payments" (1978), was an enormous popular and critical success. Like that novel, much of her subsequent fiction explores themes of faith and gender.
From the Publisher
Annotation Isabel Moore, a 30-year-old woman who has spent all her adult life caring for a bedridden father, tries to make a new life after his death. However, the guilt engendered by her strict Catholic upbringing undermines her efforts until, in the end, she finally finds the strength to throw off her loveless background and act on her own behalf.
Editors Note After eleven isolated years caring for her invalid father, a professor who had suffered a stroke upon discovering her in bed with a student, Isabel Moore tries to reenter the world with the help of two very different friends.
Editors Note 2 After eleven years of devotion to her father, Isabel Moore suddenly finds herself with what most of us dream of: a chance to create a totally new existence. Witty, brave, intelligent, and passionate, she sets out to conquer the world. She is supported by the loving encouragement of two old school friends, rapidly becomes involved with two men -- and then discovers that before she can grasp the present she must make her final payments to the past.From the Paperback edition.
