A critic said about "The End of Loneliness" that it was the best John Irving novel that John Irving never wrote. The family saga by Benedict Wells is deeply moving, a tearjerker.
Three siblings, a car accident and a lifelong love: The young Benedict Wells infuses his novel with the wisdom and the wit of adulthood — and follows in the footsteps of some of the great coming-of-age novelists.
This prize-winning novel combines diverse moods, storylines and narrative genres: a German-Bulgarian funeral grotesque, a road novel, and a blackly humorous family drama centered around unfulfilled fatherly love.
