This edition limited to 300 numbered copies signed by the author. A first novel. “ In the first place, there is Aronovitz’s mesmerizing prose style — a style that can take your breath away, even when, as here, it is narrated in the voice of a not notably intellectual teenager. But more than that, there is Aronovitz’s deep understanding of human life and human emotions — the emotions of a boy struggling to understand why his parents’ marriage seems to be unraveling; the emotions of a mother who does everything she can to hold her family together and finds that it seems insufficient; and, most keenly of all, the emotions of a father whose past derelictions have cast a baleful shadow over the present and future of his entire household. Even if there was no element of supernatural terror in Alice Walks, it would deserve to be read as a plangent document of a family’s inexorable descent into heartbreak and tragedy.” #50967
