Praise for A Home at the End of the World:
"Lyrical...memorable and accomplished." --The New York Times Book Review
"Novels don't come more deeply felt than Michael Cunningham's extraordinary four-character study... The writing...is a constant pleasure, flowing and yet dense with incisive images and psychological nuance." --Matthew Gilbert, The Boston Globe
"Cunningham writes with power and delicacy.... We come to feel that we know Jonathan, Bobby, and Clare as if we lived with them; yet each one retains the mystery that in people is called soul, and in fiction is called art." --Richard Eder, The Los Angeles Times
"Once in a great while, there appears a novel so spellbinding in its beauty and sensitivity that the reader devours it nearly whole, in great greedy gulps, and feels stretched sore afterwards, having been expanded and filled. Such a book is Michael Cunningham's A Home at the End of the World." --Sherry Rosenthal, San Diego TribuneAbout the Author:
Michael Cunningham is "one of our very best writers" (Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times). An excerpt from this novel was published in The New Yorker, chosen for Best American Short Stories 1989, and featured on NPR's Selected Shorts.
