A Home at the End of the World probes the concepts of family, home, community, and most importantly the self. It reveals how we must first walk the path to ourselves before reaching the haven of family and home.
It tells the stories of Jonathan Glover and Bobby Morrow, who have been friends since the age of thirteen. Jonathan is lonely, alienated, and introspective; Bobby is hip, dark, and inarticulate. Each in; his own way comes from a troubled home. Bobby's adored older brother dies in a freak accident and his family slowly dissolves around him. Jonathan's family, too, is somehow possessed by the spirit of absence. Together, they find a solidarity, a solidarity that they lack separately.
After Jonathan leaves Cleveland for college and settles in New York, Bobby stays on, living a kind of half-life with Jonathan's parents. Later, he drifts to New York and moves in with Jonathan who remains his essential link to the world. Jonathan's roommate, Clare, a veteran of New York's erotic wars, has been talking about having a child with Jonathan, even though she is aware of his homosexuality. But when /Bobby moves in their household is altered: soon Bobby and Clare are lovers and Clare becomes pregnant. Eventually Bobby, Jonathan, and Clare decide to raise "their" child together, move to a small house upstate and embark on the precarious project of creating a new kind of family.
