Description

By the author of Ducks, Newburyport, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2019 and the Goldsmiths Prize In an eminent London art institute – the Catafalque – Our Heroine Isabel (she of the obsessional habits, perpetual virginity and peculiar belly button) sit in wistful contemplation of Chardin’s brushstrokes and the virile red socks of passing lecturers. Isabel’s wholly imaginary love life (based on the romantic notions of authoress Babs Cartwheel) bears little resemblance to that of her flatmate Pol, who prefers to grip reality by the balls. Enter Robert, victim of an American childhood, kitsch memorabilia, academic rivalry, Pol’s belly-dancing and Isabel’s mute adoration. Can he be perverse enough not to despair? show more
