Reprint. Originally published: New York: Scribner, 1996; London: Anchor, 1997.

The End of Alice treads the thin line between the evil and the everyday and caused a major controversy when it was first released in the US.

The story centres on the correspondence of two paedophiles: one, the narrator, is a middle-aged child-killer serving his twenty-third year in prison; the other, his slang-speaking, sweet-seeming admirer, is a nineteen-year-old girl intent on seducing a young neighbourhood boy.

Slowly, through these letters, the narrator's dangerous character emerges.
