Alice McDermott tells the story of Billy Lynch within the complex matrix of a tightly knit Irish American community, in a voice that is resonant and full of deep feeling. Charming Billy is a masterpiece about the unbreakable bonds of memory and desire.
 
Charming Billy is the winner of the 1998 National Book Award for Fiction.

""A luminous and affecting novel.""--The New York Times
 
""Alice McDermott demonstrates anew that she is a writer in a league all her own.""--People
 
""An exquisitly rendered potrait . . . tales overlap tales in a singsong pattern of Irish-American brogue and family history.""--Entertainment Weekly
 
""An astoundingly beautiful novel about the persistence of love, the perseverance of grief, and all-but-unbearable loneliness, as well as faith, loyalty, and redemption.""--Philadelphia Inquirer
 
""Taut and beautifully written . . . Each distinct atom of reality splits under McDermott's artisan hammer and releases a world of wild, lost particles: charm, for example, and others the physicists have not yet invented, such as grief, comedy, even happiness.""--Los Angeles Times
 
""This is fiction as good as it gets.""--USA Today
 
""Haunting . . . mesmerizing . . . McDermott is an enormously skilled and assured writer who transforms the ordinary into something resonant and magical.""--Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
""[A] rueful shrug of a novel whose strong, shrewd opening pages should be taught in college writing classes.""--Time
