RPI: Writers Institute welcomes Alice McDermott

Alice McDermott, winner of the National Book Award for the novel, Charming Billy (1998), is the author most recently of the novel, Someone (2013), the story of one woman’s “ordinary” life across the decades of the 20th century in an Irish-American enclave in Brooklyn, New York. Someone was named a “Best Book of the Year” by NPR, The New York Times, and the Washington Post. The New York Times described the novel as “A fine-tuned, beautiful book filled with so much universal experience, such haunting imagery, such urgent matters of life and death.” McDermott’s previous novels include three Pulitzer Prize finalists: That Night (1987), At Weddings and Wakes (1992), and After This (2006).
