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.
"This is everything fiction should be - wrenching, disturbing and emotive." (Independent)
"A. M. Homes never plays it safe and it begins to look as if she can do almost anything." (Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours)
"Undeniably shocking.... Superbly achieved by a writer who is a true artist in words." (Vogue)
