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.

Not really a review. This book was picked for me in a challenge. I began to read, got about 15% in, but didn't finish - too many things started happening all at once, GRamazon one of them (what a waste of time, but it totally sucked me in) However I did find time to watch a movie based on the book. ...

0.0 A Home at the End of the World: A Novel
Like The Hours, this has some incredibly beautiful, amazingly poignant, and overwhelming sad bits. At first I wondered if I would get the various narrators' voices muddled (especially Bobby and Jonathan), but they quickly developed as separate entities in my reader's mind and I did not find myself w...

I love New York stories, I love the '80s. The plot is captivating, and for someone coming from Eastern Europe, such a story taking place while they grew up, - in a different part of the world, of course - seems pretty unbelievable.
