With her signature humor and compassion, A.M. Homes exposes
the heart of an uneasy America in her new collection -
exploring our attachments to each other through characters
who aren't quite who they hoped to become, though there is
no one else they can be.
In "A Prize for Every Player," a man is nominated to run for
president by the customers of a big box store, while he and
his family do their weekly shopping. At a conference on
genocide(s) in the title story, old friends rediscover
themselves and one another - finding spiritual and physical
comfort in ancient traditions. And in "Hello Everybody" and
"She Got Away," Homes revisits a Los Angeles family obsessed
with the surfaces and frightened of what lives below.
In the nearly three decades since her seminal debut
collection The Safety of Objects, Homes has been
celebrated by readers and critics alike as one of our
boldest and most original writers, acclaimed for her
psychological accuracy and "satire so close to the truth
it's terrifying" (Ali Smith). Her first book since the
Women's Prize-winning May We Be Forgiven, Days of
Awe is a major new addition to her body of visionary,
fearless, outrageously funny work.
