The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott
If she seems sometimes to write the same novel again and again, it's never without something new and different -- and this one I find as affecting as any or her previous work.
It reminders me of Angela's Ashes more than anything else.
The close reading and description of the nuns is fantastic -- and their voices remind me of Richard Russo's great short story, "The Whore's Daughter."
