Beautifully written, sweetly melancholic and sharply observed, A Home at the End of the World is the story of people living life without a blueprint. They are outsiders, misfits in several ways- Bobby, kind and open, but haunted; clever, gay Jonathan, unhappy with his directionless life; and fiercely independent Clare, searching for a future to match her dreams. Could it be that together they might make a life for themselves, and perhaps even find love, of a strange kind?

This is my favorite novel of the 90's. Beautifully and sensitively written.

I picked this book up at random. At first it was strange, and I wasn't sure where it could possibly be going. However, this book gains some momentum once the characters are developed. I enjoyed the progression and watching them grow.
A beautiful character study. An honest depiction of an obscure family and a good read.
