Appendix A: An Elaboration on the Novel The End of Alice
Appendix Ais an elaboration on A.M. Homes' novel The End of Alice, and lays bare the process of creating a character and building a fiction. The End of Aliceis a tale told by an aging sex offender drawn into a summer correspondence with a college student. At first the criminal and his correspondent are merely pen pals, teasing each other, but as their epistolary exchange grows increasingly seductive, the full story of the criminal unfolds. Functioning as a compendium of evidence, Appendix Agathers an array of evidence--a photo album, paintings, assorted trinkets, teeth, a watch--remnants of the narrator's lingering and deadly infatuation with a little girl called Alice. An elaboration of the act of novel writing, Appendix Ais unique exploration of the troubled boundary between truth and fiction, art and evidence.

A really neat mixed-media expansion of The End of Alice. If you've read that novel, this could be considered a collection of court exhibits connected to the story. Read full review
