This book will save your life by A. M Homes( Book )

55 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 1,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Novak is a modern-day Everyman, a middle-aged divorcé trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job getting his life under control that he needs no one--except his trainer, nutritionist, and housekeeper. He is functionally dead and doesn't even notice until two incidents--an attack of intense pain that lands him in the emergency room, and the discovery of an expanding sinkhole outside his house--conspire to hurl him back into the world. He forms the first of many new relationships on his way home from the hospital. In the end, Richard is also brought back in closer touch with his family, including his estranged son. The promised land of Los Angeles is also very much a character in this novel about compassion, transformation, and what can happen if you are willing to lose yourself and open up to the world around you.--From publisher description

Music for torching by A. M Homes( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As A.M. Homes's incendiary novel unfolds, the Kodacolor hues of the good life become nearly hallucinogenic. Laying bare the foundations of a marriage, flash frozen in the anxious entropy of a suburban subdivision, Paul and Elaine spin the quiet terrors of family life into a fantastical frenzy that careens out of control. From a strange and hilarious encounter with a Stepford Wife neighbor to an ill-conceived plan for a tattoo, to a sexy cop who shows up at all the wrong moments, to a housecleaning team in space suits, a mistress calling on a cell phone, and a hostage situation at a school, A.M. Homes creates characters so outrageously flawed and deeply human that they are entriely believeable
