Almost Moon by Alice Sebold
Book DescriptionHelen Knightly has spent a lifetime trying to win the love of a mother who had none to spare. And as this electrifying novel opens, she steps over a boundary she never dreamt she would even approach. But while her act is almost unconscious, it also seems like the fulfilment of a lifetime's buried desire. Over the next twenty-four hours, her life rushes in at her as she confronts the choices that have brought her to this crossroads. 'Sebold writes brilliantly ...The Almost Moon is a mature, salutary and timely novel' Helen Dunmore, The Times 'Exhilarating, unforgettable ...This is a remarkable novel in which every word is vital, each nuance felt ...Candid, gut-wrenching, at times horribly funny and often beautifully touching ...The genius which guides The Almost Moon is its absolute, horrible, multiple truths; its staggering clarity' Irish Times 'As moving as it is unquestionably gripping' Observer

Book Review: Almost Moon by Alice Sebold - Reviewed by CloggieA (23 May 2011)
The Almost Moon is the second novel by Alice Sebold. Helen Knightly narrates the story, which begins when she murders her mother, Clair. As we follow events over the next 24 hours, we learn about Helen’s life and what brought her to this momentous act: her love-hate relationship with her mentally-ill mother; her career as an artist’s model; her failed marriage; her dysfunctional relationship with her daughters. Helen has spent her whole life exposed to mental illness so it seems almost inevitable that she will question her own sanity. Sebold explores loyalty and devotion, and the fine line that exists between the impulse and the act. This is a powerful and passionate story, full of black humour. I enjoyed The Lovely Bones: this one is at least as good, if not better!
