In a tale that unfolds over the course of one week, the author of "The Safety of Objects" lays bare the foundations of marriage and family life at the end of the 20th century--an American Dream gone dry.
From the Publisher:

As A.M. Homes's incendiary novel unfolds, the Kodacolor hues of the good life become nearly hallucinogenic.Laying bare th foundations of a marriage, flash frozen in the anxious entropy of a suburban subdivision, Paul and Elaine spin the quit terors of family life into a fantastical frenzy that careens out of control.From a strange and hilarious encounter with a Stepford Wife neighbor to an ill-conceived plan for a tattoo, to a sexy cop who shows up at all the wrong moments, to a housecleaning team in space suits, a mistress calling on a cell phone, and a hostage situationat a school, A.M. Homes creates characters so outrageously flawed and deeply human that thery are entriely believable.


Kirkus Reviews
"Seldom subtle but often effective and almost always deeply creepy." 03/15/1999

New York Times Book Review
"[A] nasty and willfully grotesque novel....But even so, I found myself rapt fro beginning to end, fascinated by Homes's single-minded talent for provocation. And for the two days it took me to read the novel, I could think about little else." - Gary Krist 0/30/1999
