A magnificent new novel from one of America’s finest writers—a powerfully affecting story spanning the twentieth century of a widow and her daughter and the nuns who serve their Irish-American community in Brooklyn. On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens a gas tap in his Brooklyn tenement. He is determined to prove—to the subway bosses who have recently fired him, to his pregnant wife—that “the hours of his life . . . belonged to himself alone.” In the aftermath of the fire that follows, Sister St. Saviour, an aging nun, a Little Nursing Sister of the Sick Poor, appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his widow and his unborn child. In Catholic Brooklyn in the early part of the twentieth century, decorum, superstition, and shame collude to erase the man’s brief existence, and yet his suicide, though never spoken of, reverberates through many lives—testing the limits and the demands of love and sacrifice, of forgiveness and forgetfulness, even through multiple generations. Rendered with remarkable delicacy, heart, and intelligence, Alice McDermott’s The Ninth Hour is a crowning achievement of one of the finest American writers at work today.

The ninth hour is the hour in which the sun possesses us and we abandon ourselves to its burning, blinding flame to think with a light so bright. At noon we come out of Plato's cave and stare into the sun: the unknown gazing into the unknown. These writings do not owe anything to the philosophical sun, the good sun of Plato that erases all differences, the good sun of enlightened reason that is oblivious to the knowledge of the "madman." They are writings born beyond the sun, on the "rotten" side of the sun, unprotected by the shadow of logic; writings come out of darkness, of the spiritual umbra of he who stares directly at the sun. And, more specifically, writings begotten out of the spiritual nigrescence of whom writes at the ninth hour, at high noon.

Rosaleen ist eine Frau, die nichts tut und von den anderen alles erwartet. Sie ist Mitte siebzig, die vier Kinder sind schon lange aus dem Haus. Die Brüder Dan und Emmett sind vor der Enge der irischen Heimat in die Ferne geflohen; das Nesthäkchen Hanna wollte auf den Theaterbühnen der Welt reüssieren, spricht aber nun dem Alkohol zu, und Constance, die Älteste, hat sich selbst verloren. Doch abgenabelt hat sich keines der Kinder. Noch immer versucht jedes auf seine Weise, es dieser besten aller Mütter recht zu machen. Und scheitert. Da kommt die Einladung zu einem letzten Weihnachtsfest in Ardeevin. Rosaleen möchte das Haus, in dem die Kinder groß geworden sind, das voller Erinnerungen an glückliche Momente und Verletzungen steckt, verkaufen. Die Geschwister reisen mit diffuser Hoffnung auf Versöhnung an – und doch endet es, wie noch jedes Weihnachten geendet hat. Booker-Preisträgerin Anne Enright wagt sich auf den dunklen Grund unserer Gefühle, studiert menschliches Verhalten dort, wo es am störanfälligsten ist, wo Liebe und Hass nahe beieinander liegen und es kein oder zumindest kein einfaches Entrinnen gibt: in der Familie.
