Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time, an audio production is available of Michael Cunninghams critically acclaimed novel—published to coincide with the release of the feature film starring Colin Farrell and Dallas Roberts

M ichael Cunninghams celebrated novel is the story of two boyhood friends: Jonathan, lonely, introspective, and unsure of himself; and Bobby, hip, dark, and inarticulate. In New York after college, Bobby moves in with Jonathan and his roommate, Clare, a veteran of the citys erotic wars. Bobby and Clare fall in love, scuttling the plans of Jonathan, who is gay, to father Clares child. Then, when Clare and Bobby have a baby, the three move to a small house upstate to raise “their” child together and create a new kind of family. A Home at the End of the World masterfully depicts the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.

Synopsis:

From Michael Cunningham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours, comes this widely praised novel of two boyhood friends: Jonathan, lonely, introspective, and unsure of himself; and Bobby, hip, dark, and inarticulate. In New York after college, Bobby moves in with Jonathan and his roommate, Clare, a veteran of the city's erotic wars. Bobby and Clare fall in love, scuttling the plans of Jonathan, who is gay, to father Clare's child. Then, when Clare and Bobby have a baby, the three move to a small house upstate to raise "their" child together and, with an odd friend, Alice, create a new kind of family. A Home at the End of the World masterfully depicts the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.
