Publisher's Summary

July 1954. An island off the coast of Maine. Ann Grant, a 25-year-old New York career girl, is a bridesmaid at her best friend's lavish wedding. Also present is a man named Harris Arden, whom Ann has never met. After three marriages and five children, Ann Lord lies dying in an upstairs bedroom of a house in Cambridge, Massachusetts. What comes to her, eclipsing a stream of doctor's visits and friends stopping by and grown children overheard whispering from the next room, is a rush of memories from a weekend 40 years ago in Maine, when she fell in love with a passion that even now throws a shadow onto the rest of her life. In Evening, Susan Minot gives us a novel of spellbinding power on the nature of memory and love.

Critic Reviews

"A brilliant lyric performance." (John Casey)
"Her best work yet, assured, supple, exhilarating in its nerve and cool momentum." (Joan Didion)
"In spare and lovely language, Susan Minot has set forth a real life, in all its particularity and splendor and pain. This is the task of the novelist, and in Evening Minot has succeeded admirably." (The New York Times Book Review)
