About this book
Finally available in paperback, Homes' latest novel gives us a darkly comic look at 21st century domestic life and at individual lives spiralling out of control, bound together by family and history. Simultaneously terrifying and inspiring, this explosive novel was featured in the "Guardian" Review's 'Best of 2012' novels feature and will not disappoint fans of Homes' previous bestselling title, "This Book Will Save Your Life" which has sold over 300,000 copies.
'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 Rushdie
