'Breathtakingly accurate satire and laser-cut portraits of American life from a seriously heavyweight author whose snapshots remain etched on the retinas' Evening Standard

'...a writer to go travelling with on the journey called life' Jeanette Winterson

'...one of our most important and original writers of fiction' Jay McInerney

'Ms. Homes just gets better and better' Gary Shteyngart

'a provocative and eloquent writer, and her vision of the way we live now is anything but safe' Meg Wolitzer

''Homes is a devastating satirist..' Lionel Shriver

'at her merciless satirical best' Tessa Hadley

'These defiantly comic stories are like postcards from contemporary America' Summer Books round up, Mail on Sunday

The winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction returns with signature humour and psychological accuracy, to tell thirteen stories exposing the heart of an uneasy 21st-century America. In tales of a family obsessed with the surfaces of their lives, or the story of a shopper who suddenly finds himself nominated to run for President, she explores our attachments to each other through characters who aren't quite who they hoped to become, though there is no one else they can be.

Her first book since the Women's Prize-winning May We Be Forgiven, Days of Awe is another visionary, fearless and outrageously funny work from a master storyteller.
