Description

'Got under my skin in the way the best writing can' SHEILA HETI, author of MOTHERHOODA fearless and savagely funny examination of masculinity under late capitalism, from an electrifying new voiceSet in Philly one year into Trump's presidency, Sean Thor Conroe's audacious, freewheeling debut follows our eponymous fuccboi, Sean, as he attempts to live meaningfully in a world that doesn't seem to need him.

Reconciling past, failed selves -- cross-country walker, SoundCloud rapper, weed farmer -- he now finds himself back in his college city, trying to write, doing stimulant-fueled bike deliveries to eat.

Unable to accept that his ex has dropped him, yet still engaged in all the same fuckery -- being coy and spineless, dodging decisions, maintaining a rotation of baes -- that led to her leaving in the first place.

But now Sean has begun to wonder, how sustainable is this mode?

How much fuckery is too much fuckery?Written in a riotous, utterly original idiom, and slyly undercutting both the hypocrisy of our era and that of Sean himself, Fuccboi is an unvarnished, playful, and searching examination of what it means to be a man. 'Terse and intense and new and sort of fucked up but knowingly so.

I loved it' TOMMY ORANGE, author of THERE THERE'Attempt[s] to do what in 2020s America is tricky verging on taboo: to write like a man, not an ideal' ROB DOYLE, OBSERVER'Like Knausgaard, Conroe has a knack for making the mundane enthralling' CHRIS POWER, author of A LONELY MAN'How brilliant to finally have a novel that examines contemporary masculinity with such candour, with such humour and style as to immediately read like amodern classic' BARRY PIERCE, IRISH TIMES
