Description
(Winner of the 2013 Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange Prize)) The author of such controversial novels as The End of Alice and Music for Torching as well as the memoir The Mistress's Daughter, A.M. Homes gives us "a piercing, perceptive and deeply funny novel about the nature of life, and about finding your family wherever you can, wherever you get comfort and something approaching love" (Independent on Sunday, London). Dangerously unstable, George is hospitalized after causing a deadly car crash. Then he comes home unannounced and kills his wife, who was sleeping in bed next to his brother Harry. After Harry's wife leaves him, and with George permanently institutionalized, it is Harry who takes over the care of his niece and nephew, and tries to rebuild some semblance of a family.

"This novel starts at maximum force—and then it really gets going. I can't remember when I last read a novel of such narrative intensity; an unflinching account of a catastrophic, violent, black comic, transformative year in the history of one broken American family. Flat-out amazing."—Salman Rushie
