Synopsis

The End of Alice treads the thin line between the evil and the everyday and caused a major controversy when it was first released in the US. The story centres on the correspondence of two paedophiles: one, the narrator, is a middle-aged child-killer serving his twenty-third year in prison; the other, his slang-speaking, sweet-seeming admirer, is a nineteen-year-old girl intent on seducing a young neighbourhood boy. Slowly, through these letters, the narrator's dangerous character emerges.

Author Choice

Deeply creepy story of a paedophile and murderer who becomes a strange sort of inspiration for a young woman who lusts after an underage boy. Not for the faint of heart, but a brave look at disturbed minds.
