Here, Stewart O''Nan''s intimate new novel follows Emily
Maxwell, a widow whose grown children have long moved away. She
dreams of vists by her grandchildren while mourning the turnover of
her quiet Pittsburgh neighborhood, but when her sole companion and
sister-in-law Arlene faints at their favorite breakfast buffet,
Emily''s days change. As she grapples with her new independence,
she discovers a hidden strength and realizes that life always
offers new possibilities. Like most older women, Emily is a
familiar yet invisible figure, one rarely portrayed so honestly.
Her mingled feelings-of pride and regret, joy and sorrow- are
gracefully rendered in wholly unexpected ways. Once again making
the ordinary and overlooked not merely visible but vital to
understanding our own lives, Emily, Alone confirms O''Nan
as an American master.
