McDermott grew up on Long Island, which became the setting for much of her writing. She attended the State University of New York at Oswego, then worked in publishing for a year, hoping to rid herself of the writing bug. Failing that, she went to graduate school at the University of New Hampshire and soon began publishing short stories in women’s magazines. Her first novel, A Bigamist’s Daughter, came out in 1982. Her second, That Night (1987), was nominated for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer.
