Golden Hare Books is delighted to welcome AM Homes to the shop with her masterful latest collection of short stories, Days of Awe. Come along, have a glass of wine, and listen to an extraordinary storyteller at work.

“This prose has teeth … you cannot shake a Homes story off your mind, you cannot rid yourself of the creeping unease it brings to your bedside table.” Zadie Smith

“A. M. Homes can’t really be compared to any other writer; no one else is quite as dark

and funny and elegant all at the same time.” Viv Groskop, Observer

“Wild and funny, questioning and true, she is a writer to go travelling with

on the journey called life.” Jeanette Winterson

“A. M. Homes has long been one of our most important and original writers of fiction.”

Jay McInerne

A. M. Homes returns with thirteen stories exposing the heart of an uneasy 21st-century America. With the humour and psychological accuracy for which she is acclaimed, she digs deep into the past and shows how no one’s life is truly their own. From academics at a genocide conference to 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 is another visionary, fearless and outrageously funny work from a master storyteller.

A.M. HOMES

A.M. Homes lives in New York City and teaches at Princeton University. She is the author of the novels May We Be Forgiven, which won the Women’s Prize 2013, This Book Will Save Your Life, a Richard and Judy pick in 2007, Music for Torching, The End of Alice, In a Country of Mothers and Jack; two collections of short stories, Things You Should Know and The Safety of Objects; and the highly acclaimed memoir The Mistress’s Daughter, as well as the travel memoir Los Angeles: People, Places and the Castle on the Hill. She is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and writes frequently on arts and culture for numerous magazines and newspapers
