The Boyfriend

Laura Southgate

Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A disconcerting novel of first loves and dangerous relationships perfect for fans of Nell Zink, Olivia Laing and Sally Rooney

Winner of the Adam Foundation Prize

Erica is 17 and in her last year of high school. Donny is 42 and everywhere - in her yoga class, at German Club, in her parents' spare room . . .

The story of a young woman who finds herself subject to the gravitational field of a charismatic man, The Boyfriend is a cautionary tale about blindly accepting traditional 'love' narratives.

This clear-eyed, dismaying and often hilarious examination of sexual desire, trauma and growth is a remarkable debut and a perfect novel for our time.
