I'm finally reading the proof for this book, coming out this month actually.
A. M Homes is often described with adjective such as "transgressive," "dark" and "funny." This new book is oddly a play on transformation, almost a tale of a man coming to a crisis of his life and learning from it - something that seems more out of Oprah Winfrey than what fans are used to.
But it is funny. Homes always had a tendency towards humour of the absurd. Human life is absurd afterall.
Will update as I progress in my reading.
