AM Homes' most infamous novel about the manifestations of forbidden desire and its terrible consequences.
'A.M. Homes never plays it safe and it begins to look as if she can
do almost anything' - Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning
author of The Hours
'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] 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
