In the National Book Award-winning "Let the Great World Spin, "Colum McCann thrilled readers with a marvelous high-wire act of fiction that "The New York Times Book Review "called "an emotional tour de force." Now McCann demonstrates once again why he is one of the most acclaimed and essential authors of his generation with a soaring novel that spans continents, leaps centuries, and unites a cast of deftly rendered characters, both real and imagined. From the loughs of Ireland to the flatlands of Missouri and the windswept coast of Newfoundland, the characters' journeys mirror the progress and shape of history.

September Girls is a stunning coming-of-age novel about first loves, oblivious parents, sibling rivalries--and mermaids. This imaginative and painfully honest book garnered five starred reviews, including one from ALA Booklist that proclaimed it "a rare and lovely novel, deserving of attention from discriminating readers."
