The Boyfriend Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Winner of the Adam Foundation PrizeErica 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.
