Description - Music For Torching by A. M. Homes

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 careens well and truly out of control. As A.M. Homes's incendiary novel unfolds, the Kodacolor 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.

Buy Music For Torching by A. M. Homes from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
