The Evening of Adam

(1994)
A novel by

 
 
Book DescriptionAlice Thomas Ellis’s novels have enjoyed both critical and popular success, but The Evening of Adam shows Ellis is equally adept in the short story form. This collection contains 15 of her best stories, blending sharp-eyed humor and observation with myth and imagination to depict the mysterious forces that lurk beneath the ordered facade of daily life. In the serenity of summertime, in the peace of a church, in the jovial chatter of a pub, and wherever men and women struggle to understand and accept one another, nothing is quite as it seems. “A dexterous and subtle wit is always at work, undermining the tragedy and poking fun.” — The Times (London)
