From the Publisher:
Helen Knightly, who has set aside her own life in her support of her parents, husband, and children, confronts the realities of the choices that were imposed upon her during a brief, harrowing period of death and revelation.Having set aside her own life in her support of her parents, husband, and children, Helen Knightly confronts the realities of the choices that were imposed upon her during a harrowing twenty-four-hour period of death and revelation. By the author of The Lovely Bones. Reprint.
Annotation:
Helen had just murdered her mother, and in the hours that follow, as she awaits her fate, she thinks back on the painful wreck of her life: her abusive childhood, her failed marriage, and her inability to break free from her mentally disturbed mother. THE LOVELY BONES, Sebold's breakout bestseller, was certainly dark--its child narrator told her story from the grave--but THE ALMOST MOON is pitch black. There's little or no hope for Helen, but Sebold's unflinching prose forces the reader to empathize with the novel's damaged protagonist.

Praise

"Unremittingly bleak...[and written with] such honesty and empathy that many will find their own dark impulses reflected here." 07/07/2007
