Product Details


“A tear-jerker . . . it is impossible to look away from it, the unravelling, reforming lives of its characters.”The Guardian

“The trajectory of a long life, from childhood, through the adult disappointments, through parenthood: this is what novels do best. Our fate is everything we become; yet what happens to Jules and Alva, in the hands of Benedict Wells, is dazzling storytelling… The End of Loneliness is both affecting and accomplished — and eternal.”—John Irving, author of The World According to Garp, The Cider House Rules, and Avenue of Mysteries
“Original and captivating, it’s high time this German author had more work translated in to English…[The End of Loneliness]’s quiet charm in straightforward prose belies its sharp insight into the human condition.”Stylist Magazine
“This novel has been rightfully described as something of a masterpiece. One thing is for sure — it is not easily forgotten. Heartfelt and enriching.”Sunday Post
“With a surprising maturity . . . Benedict Wells has found a voice to describe, neither cruelly nor over-sensitively, human fragility, failure and ageing.”Le Monde
“The writing is as luminous as the subject is dark.”Elle, Paris
“Sophisticated . . . [Jules’] projection into kinder realities offers the novel’s most literary and most immediate, emotive pleasures.”The Irish Times
“A superbly insightful story.”—BookRiot
