Me and the fat man

£2.99

Product description

Myerson's third novel, her most uninhibited and powerful, is Amy's story - a journey of sexual desire and her strange relationship with the fat man who rescues her from the past. Amy is a waitress in Bath. She is married and she also finds men in the Garden of the Blind who pay to have sex with her. And then Harris arrives in the restaurant one day; he knew Amy's mother, who drowned in the Aegean when she was a young girl. It is not clear why Harris wants Amy to meet Gary, a young fat man he shares a flat with, but it is the beginning of a strange relationship that will take them back to Greece, where the past is confronted and the future buried. Julie Myerson's prose is so spare, hypnotic, nerve-jangling it leaves you winded, Amy's story so compulsive and frightening it is impossible to put down. Me and the Fat Man establishes this highly acclaimed writer as one of the finest young novelists at work today.
