Lorrie Moore’s first novel since A Gate at the Stairs—a daring, meditative exploration of love and death, passion and grief, and what it means to be haunted by the past, both by history and the human heart

A teacher visiting his dying brother in the Bronx. A mysterious journal from the nineteenth century stolen from a boarding house. A therapy clown and an assassin, both presumed dead, but perhaps not dead at all...

With her distinctive, irresistible wordplay and singular wry humor and wisdom, Lorrie Moore has given us a magic box of longing and surprise as she writes about love and rebirth and the pull towards life. Bold, meditative, theatrical, this new novel is an inventive, poetic portrait of lovers and siblings as it questions the stories we have been told which may or may not be true.

I Am Homeless If This Is Not My Home takes us through a trap door, into a windswept, imagined journey to the tragic-comic landscape that is, unmistakably, the world of Lorrie Moore.


“By the end of this wise, tender novel, we can only conclude that everything is pretty damn wonderful, too.”Catherine Jarvie, Marie Claire (UK)
“Moore is after something more mysterious than naturalism. She is operating in the territory of myth. Moore’s fever dream of a world [feels] so relentlessly real
.” —David L. Ulin, L.A. Times
“Her style is still hers alone . . . this new novel is a reminder to prize every moment we get with her on the page.”
