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
Homes instructs us about ourselves and shows us what we are blighted with, and cringe from, our compulsions, repressions, longings, glimpses of madness
