A. M. Homes

Salon wrote of the characters in A. M. Homes s 2002 story collection Things You Should Know, There are few formalities, even less bulls--t, no making nice for the sake of appearances. The same could be said for Homes s work as a whole. She specializes in bringing dark impulses and twisted tendencies to the surface, never softening or downplaying the often disturbing behavior displayed by her characters.
