Not yet rated | write a review
At age 39, Ariel Gore has everything she''s always wanted: a successful writing career, a long-term partnership, a beautiful if tiny home, a daughter in college and a son in preschool. But life''s happy endings don''t always last. If it''s not one thing, after all, it''s your mother. Her name is Eve. Her epic temper tantrums have already gotten her banned from three cab companies in Portland. And she''s here to announce that she''s dying. "Pitifully,Ariel," she sighs. "You''re all I have." Ariel doesn''t want to take care of her crazy dying mother, but she knows she will. It''s the right thing to do, isn''t it? And, anyway, how long could it go on? "Don''t worry," Eve says. "If I''m ever a burden, I''ll just blow my brains out." Amidst the chaos of clowns and hospice workers, pie and too much whiskey, Ariel''s own ten-year relationship begins to unravel. Darkly humorous and intimately human, The End of Eve redefines the meaning of family and everything we''ve ever been taught to call "love."
