This Book Will Save Your Life

by A. Homes

This Book Will Save Your Life Synopsis

Richard Novak is a modern day everyman, a middle-aged divorcee trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job getting his life under control that he needs no one, except his trainer, nutritionist and housekeeper. His life has slowed almost to a standstill, until two incidents conspire to hurl him back into the world. THIS BOOK WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE beautifully captures the strangeness of life through its depiction of the weirdness and instability of LA, a surreal city of earthquakes, wildfires, mudslides, feral chihuahuas and doughnut-sellers with big dreams. And it reveals what can happen if you are willing to open up to the world around you. Since her debut in 1989, A. M. Homes has been among the boldest and most original voices of her generation, acclaimed for the psychological accuracy and unnerving emotional intensity of her storytelling. Her keen ability to explore how extraordinary the ordinary can be is at the heart of this touching and funny new novel, her first in six years.
