The Safety of Objects by A.M. Homes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Safety of Objects, A.M Homes' first collection of short stories, is as hilarious, perverse and extraordinary as all of Homes' books. In one of the stories, a girl's blonde Barbie doll seduces her teenaged brother in an intense episode of erotic obsession; in others a couple go off the rails and smoke crack while their children are staying with their Grandmother; and a lawyer seeks revenge on his boss by urinating into his potted plant every evening. The stories are both bizarre and believable, very funny but also frightening and sad.

Author Biography
