Description The Safety of Objects de A M Homes:

The breakthrough story collection that established A. M. Homes as one of the most daring writers of her generation Originally published in 1990 to wide critical acclaim, this extraordinary first collection of stories by A. M. Homes confronts the real and the surreal on even terms to create a disturbing and sometimes hilarious vision of the American dream. Included here are "Adults Alone," in which a couple drops their kids off at Grandma's and gives themselves over to ten days of Nintendo, porn videos, and crack- "A Real Doll," in which a girl's blond Barbie doll seduces her teenaged brother- and "Looking for Johnny," in which a kidnapped boy, having failed to meet his abductor's expectations, is returned home. These stories, by turns satirical, perverse, unsettling, and utterly believable, expose the dangers of ordinary life even as their characters stay hidden behind the disguises they have so carefully created. A. M. Homes is the author of the memoir "The Mistress's Daughter" and the novels "This" "Book Will Save Your Life," "Music for Torching," "The End of Alice," "In a Country of Mothers," and "Jack." She has published fiction and essays in the "New Yorker," "Granta," "Harper's Magazine," "McSweeney's," "One Story," the "New York Times," and "Vanity Fair," where she is a contributing editor. She lives in New York City.
