This Book Will Save Your Life
An uplifting story set in Los Angeles about one man's effort to bring himself back to life. Richard is a modern day everyman; a middle-aged divorcee trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job getting his life under control that he needs no one. His life has slowed almost to a standstill, until two incidents conspire to hurl him back into the world.
"AM Homes is among the most pre-eminent chroniclers of contemporary American anomie, clinical in her description of the symptoms of a particular strain of suburban soul-sickness. But in this, her fifth novel, she prescribes the cure...This being LA and an A M Homes story, bizarre things will happen too, but, for the most part, this is the simple story of a man learning how to enjoy simple pleasures... Homes is one of those writers who, though her prose and storytelling give the impression of being artless, still grabs hold of you, completely involves you, makes you care and moves you."
