Description

Included in Library Journals 25 Key Indie Fiction Titles, Fall 2014-Winter 2015?Praise for Sam Savage:",With paragraphs as rich as koans, this is as powerful a meditation on living lifeand facing its endas you are likely to read anytime soon.",Booklist",Stream-of-consciousness fiction with a satisfying emotional weight: another intriguing experiment in narrative voice from Savage.",Kirkus ReviewsSam Savage manages to be both artful and literal-minded in this faux autobiographical tale of childhood and a mother afflicted and finally driven mad by her wish for artistic success. Savage writes knowingly about the uncertainties of childhood memory, but creates a convincing world of sibling combat and adult pretension. A wonderful, absorbing novel.C. Michael Curtis, Fiction Editor, The Atlantic MonthlySavage's latest novel dismantles the mythic greats of the pastan American South that never was and a mother's artistic pretensions that never should have been. In the story of Eve, Savage finds a voice that captures both the frustrations of our degraded world and the tender sympathy it evokes for all our sad efforts to leave something beautiful behind.

Newsweek's Favorite Books of 2014 Praise for Sam Savage: Winner of the O. Henry Prize for "Cigarettes" "Sam Savage manages to be both artful and literal-minded in this faux autobiographical tale of childhood and a mother afflicted and finally driven mad by her wish for artistic success. Savage writes knowingly about the uncertainties of childhood memory, but creates a convincing world of sibling combat and adult pretension. A wonderful, absorbing novel.”-C. Michael Curtis, Fiction Editor, The Atlantic Monthly "If the world-all its hysteric noise-was muted for just one minute, Sam Savage is what you might be fortunate enough to hear. His elegant laconism, his leaps across the self-evident, his soft aplomb, and the rarified air he bestows upon the mundane make him the only American writer worthy of the label the true eccentric."-Valeria Luiselli It Will End With Us is Sam Savage's latest deep dive into the mind and voice of a character, and his most personal work yet. Brick by textual brick, his narrator, Eve, builds a memorial to the mother who raised her, emotionally abandoned her, and shaped her in her own image. Eve's memories summon a childhood in rural South Carolina, a decaying house on impoverished soil, and an insular society succumbing to the influences of a wider world. It Will End With Us is a portrait of a place full of hummingbirds and wild irises, but also of frustration and grief. It is the story of a family tragedy, provoked by a mother's stifled ambitions, and seized by the wide-open gaze of a child. Rarely has a novel so brief taken on so much, so powerfully.
