Since her debut in 1989, A. M. Homes has been among the boldest and most original voices of her generation, acclaimed for the psychological accuracy and unnerving emotional intensity of her storytelling. Her ability to explore how extraordinary the ordinary can be is at the heart of her touching and funny new novel, her first in six years. This Book Will Save Your Life is a vivid, uplifting, and revealing story about compassion, transformation, and what can happen if you are willing to lose yourself and open up to the world around you.

Homes’ dark delivery . . . is in full regalia here. . . . Laugh-outloud funny. (The Boston Globe)

An absolute masterpiece . . . Homes writes ecstatically, and like no one else. (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

I think this brave story of a lost man’s reconnection with the world could become a generational touchstone, like Catch-22, The Monkey Wrench Gang, or The Catcher in the Rye. . . . And hey, maybe it will save somebody’s life. (Stephen King)

Hilarious . . . Homes writes in the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and has the talent to pull it off. (San Francisco Chronicle)
