About the Author

Bill Clegg is a literary agent in New York and the author of the bestselling memoirs Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man and Ninety Days. The author of the novels Did You Ever Have a Family and The End of the Day, he has written for the New York Times, Lapham's Quarterly, New York magazine, The Guardian, and Harper's Bazaar.


"Ambitious in scope, tender in detail, Bill Clegg's The End of the Day is a story that crosses boundaries of age, class, gender. Anyone who has a beating heart will find some part of themselves in this story."--Mary Beth Keane, New York Times bestselling author of Ask Again, Yes
"In his utterly absorbing and socially trenchant novel, Bill Clegg's vision is both intimate and grand. He paints precise and unerring portraits of his characters and the dynamics of class that inform their lives while at the same time asking sweeping and urgent questions: What is fate? What responsibilities do we bear for the way in which our actions and our passions alter the course of one another's lives? The novel's shattering resonance emerges from its masterful construction. Clegg leads us, and his characters, toward the discovery of long-buried secrets at the same time that he shows us that the facts of a life do not always add up to the truth."--Marisa Silver, New York Times bestselling author of Little Nothing and Mary Coin
"Lyrical...a moody, atmospheric domestic drama."--Marisa Silver, New York Times bestselling author of Little Nothing and Mary Coin "Kirkus Reviews"
"In this elegant, touching and beautifully serious novel, Bill Clegg has written characters he seems to have known all his life."--Alejandro Zambra, author of My Documents "Kirkus Reviews"
"An exquisitely structured book of reckonings. Clegg is a fearless investigator of the past and how it, no matter how buried we believe it to be, will always rise. The End of the Day left me shaken."--Peter Orner, author of Maggie Brown & Others "Kirkus Reviews"
"A mesmerizing book about family and memory and friendship and the long arc of life. I've loved every book by Bill Clegg, but The End of the Day might be my favorite because these characters, these quietly remarkable women, remind me of the epic lives hidden within all of us. Reading it is like studying a stained-glass window up close, each piece bright and sharply cut, but when you step back and see it as a whole you discover a large, beautiful, mysterious work of art."
--David Ebershoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Danish Girl and The 19th Wife
"Delicate, deeply observed, and deftly crafted, THE END OF THE DAY is a beautiful mosaic of memory, regret, and loss. A triumphant and noble novel." --Nickolas Butler, author of Shotgun Lovesongs and Little Faith
