Music For Torching, Paperback


Paul and Elaine have two boys and a beautiful home, yet they find themselves thoroughly, inexplicably stuck.

Obsessed with 'making things good again', they spin the quiet terrors of family life into a fantastical frenzy that careers well and truly out of control.

As A.M. Homes's incendiary novel unfolds, the technicolour hues of the American good life become nearly hallucinogenic: from a strange and hilarious encounter on the floor of the pantry with a Stepford Wife neighbour, to a house-cleaning team in space suits, to a hostage situation at the school.

Homes lays bare the foundations of marriage and family life and creates characters outrageously flawed, deeply human and entirely believable.
