Product description

Amazon Review

A novel that shines a flashlight under the bed of suburban perversity. A.M. Homes, whom the N.Y. Times Book Review calls "exhilaratingly perverse", lures us into a Nabokovian world where characters both repellent and seductive conduct forays into the dark depths of their obsessions.

Review

'A.M. Homes never plays it safe and it begins to look as if she can do almost anything' Michael Cunningham * 'If the first major literary marker of the American dream of aspiration, potential and never-ending youth was F. Scott Fitzgerald's lyrical piece of doomed yearning, The Great Gatsby, its postmodern flipside [is] A.M. Homes's The End of Alice, whose paired literary voices made a grotesque harmony of two yearners after the dream of youth' Ali Smith, Guardian * 'A.M. Homes instructs us about ourselves and shows us what we are blighted with and cringe from, our compulsions, repressions, longings, glimpses of madness' Ruth Rendell * 'Undeniably shocking... Superbly achieved by a writer who is a true artist in words' --Vogue

'I recently read [The End of Alice] and thought it was incredible.' --Joe Dunthorne, summer books round up, Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
