Little gods

£9.99

Product description

Signed & Dated First Edition with wonderful inscription:

"Freaks are the way forward, freaks are the vanguard. Where they lead only then can the humdrummers follow... 16/4/09"

Very good condition book with some wear to dust jacket. Internally clean and bright.

An adventure, a fairy tale of sorts, a black comedy and a love story, Little Gods is the story of Eugenia (Jean) Clocker, whose birth challenges the balance of nature and her mother's capacity for punitive cruelty. Though her name is swiftly shortened, Jean's body resists all attempts to curb it and she grows into a girl of unusual size and strength. With the unwitting power to upset the order of things, as well as most people, it takes the chaos of war to bring the rest of the world up to Jean's level of disorientation. When the accidental bombing of her house leaves her orphaned, extravagantly scarred, but brilliantly alive, she finds herself ready to relish life, and all the strangeness and opportunity her unique appearance brings . . . Reminiscent of the work of John Irving and Michael Chabon, yet also entirely original, this is one of the most moving and inventive novels of recent years.
