Praise for Days of Awe:
“Exuberantly transgressive.”- O, the Oprah Magazine
“[Homes] has shown a unique penchant for cracking open the dark heart of human nature—with irreverent wit, devastating empathy and haunting shocks…Days of Awe [is] a memorable assortment of new tales about family, love, death, and an unqualified man who somehow stumbles into becoming a populist political candidate.” - Mary Elizabeth Williams, Salon
“Homes’s keen ear for speech—surreal as her characters’ conversations often are—lends itself to varying degrees of self-aware misunderstanding, highlighting the complexity of language and the challenges…The impossibility of knowing another person completely is one of life’s painful truths, and [this] collection reminds us of that—but [it] also shows that there are, at least, tools available to help us try.”- Vanity Fair
“In the title story, a Holocaust survivor taps into a theme of the collection when he describes the way people hold the history of previous generations inside them. ’We carry it with us, not just in our grandmother’s silver,’ he says, ’but in our bodies, the cells of our hearts.’” - Wall Street Journal
