Year 5, Book 33

33. After This by Alice McDermott
This is a beautifully written book about an Irish Catholic family from Long Island in the 1940s-1970s. There really isn’t much in the way of a plot. It’s really mostly a character piece. McDermott’s descriptions are breathtaking at times though. If you’re a lover of language you should enjoy this book. I give it 7 out of 10.
