Links

A.M. Homes' novels and short story collections — including The Safety of Objects,The End of Alice, and This Book Will Save Your Life — alternately mine the gruesome and the banal to reveal equal layers of psychological complexity and contortion in each. Her first book since 2007's memoir The Mistress's Daughter,  May We Be Forgiven follows two intractably feuding brothers struggling to make peace with each other and with themselves. Sounds like a perfect candidate for a Happy Talk.

  Writer AM Homes (whose tenth book May We Be Forgiven will be released this fall) addresses (un)happy relationships with Buddhist psychiatrist Mark Epstein.
