Writing with invention and savage insight, A M Homes lays bare the insecurities of contemporary American life in her new novel 'May We Be Forgiven', which she discusses at this event.
Focusing on two brothers - Harry, a Richard Nixon scholar who leads a quiet life and George, a high-flying TV producer - this is a novel about how individual lives can spiral out of control, and sometimes be rescued by surprising intimacies.
A M Homes is the author of 'This Book Will Save Your Life' and 'The End of Alice'.
'You cannot shake a Homes story off your mind.' Zadie Smith
