The New York Times Bestselling 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 dEnouement, 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).

Professional reviews

"As an editor at a vanity press, Elizabeth Connelly has mastered the art of selling dreams and maintaining distance from her authors--until the attractive Tupper Daniels walks in with his novel about bigamy. Elizabeth finds herself drawn to both Tucker and his book, which reminds her of her father, who may have been a bigamist himself. Tavia Gilbert vividly narrates Elizabeth's quest for understanding of her past and her present. She longs to understand both her oft-absent and now departed father and the past love she cannot forget. Gilbert conveys Elizabeth's long-hidden pain and highlights McDermott's message about relationships between men and women. J.L.K (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
