Review:

"Scibona loves language and recognizes the power of using the right word. He seems better educated than most American writers, with a strong vocabulary and rich ideas that urge him to build complex sentences.... To the reader's enrichment, The End is an outstanding work in all the right ways" (Annie Proulx Guardian)

"Scibona is a gutsy, heart-and-soul writer, unafraid of emotion and ready to take risks" (Rosemary Goring Herald)

"It may have taken a while for Scibona to get to this side of the Atlantic, but The End suggests this is the beginning of a fascinating career from an important new American voice" (Stuart Evers Daily Telegraph)

"This is an extraordinary novel about the experience of immigration; unsentimental and beautifully written" (Kate Saunders The Times)

"Its moments of sharply realised emotional pull and gentle beauty reel you in" ( Metro)

Book Description:

Set in 1950s American and written in simple, beautiful prose, this is an award-winning novel about the ways in which tragedy can distort and interlink human lives.
