About this title
The author of In a Country of Mothers examines the dark, disturbing corners of an American psyche that refuses to know itself despite a plethora of cover stories on abuse and of 12-step programs for sexual addicts. Set inside the head of a violent sex offender now in his 23rd year of confinement, The End of Alice masterfully captures the decadent, sometimes violent, aspects of sexual obsession and desire.Review:
A novel that shines a flashlight under the bed of suburban perversity. A. M. Homes, whom the N.Y. Times Book Review calls "exhilaratingly perverse," lures us into a Nabokovian world where characters both repellent and seductive conduct forays into the dark limits of their obsessions.
