The End of Alice treads the thin line between the evil and the everyday and caused a major controversy when it was first published.
The story centres on a disturbing correspondence between the narrator, a middle-aged killer serving his twenty-third year in prison; and his slang-speaking, sweet-seeming admirer, a nineteen-year-old girl intent on seducing a young neighbourhood boy.
Slowly, through these letters, the narrator's dangerous character emerges.
