"

"McDermott is a spellbinder, adding a cachet of mystery and eloquence to common occurrences....She has taken a suburban teenage romance and pregnancy and infused it with the power, the ominousness, and the star-crossed romanticism of a contemporary "Romeo and Juliet"."---"Chicago Tribune

Review:

‘A stunning work’ -- Sunday Times

‘A wonderfully unfettered, ample novel. One that celebrates voice, personality and feeling when so much fiction avoids those rewarding characteristics’ -- New York Times Book Review

‘That Night has universal appeal ... there is a depth of feeling here which is beautifully - and seriously - realised’ -- Independent

‘The author’s perceptions of suburban life have a rich detail of the quality of a Cheever or an Updike’ -- Los Angeles Times
