Synopsis

From the winner of the 2013 Women's Prize for Fiction A.M Homes, the author of This Book Will Save Your Life, returns with signature humour and psychological accuracy, to tell thirteen stories exposing the heart of an uneasy 21st-century America. In tales of a family obsessed with the surfaces of their lives, or the story of a shopper who suddenly finds himself nominated to run for President, she explores our attachments to each other through characters who aren't quite who they hoped to become, though there is no one else they can be. Her first book since the Women's Prize-winning May We Be Forgiven, Days of Awe builds a picture of contemporary America at war with itself. Described by Zadie Smith as 'a razor-sharp story collection from a writer who is always furiously good' this is a visionary, fearless and outrageously funny work from a master storyteller.
