Alice McDermott in Commonweal

Got teens, God bless 'em all?

Then check out Alice McDermott's new short story, "I Am Awake," featured in the July 17, 2009 issue of Commonweal magazine, free on the website (yes, you should subscribe, they run on a frayed shoestring). Click HERE.

She tells the aching and ordinary truth, with a deeply sacramental and communal lens.

In other words, she's a Catholic writer.
