What Belongs to You: Garth Greenwell in conversation
Don't miss this intimate conversation with acclaimed novelist Garth Greenwell, whose debut What Belongs to You has been described as ‘the year’s publishing sensation’ (BBC Arts).
The story of an American expat's obsession with a young Bulgarian, What Belongs to You is a stunning novel about about dealing with one's own inheritance whilst navigating a foreign culture. Lyrical and intense, it tells the story of a man caught between longing and resentment, unable to separate desire from danger, and faced with the impossibility of understanding those he most longs to know.
One of the most fearless and heartbreaking accounts of desire that I can remember reading, worthy of its comparisons to James Baldwin and Alan Hollinghurst as well as Virginia Woolf and W G Sebald… Spellbinding intensity… Crystalline sentences, at once melancholy and profound… It is a novel of rejection and disgust, displacement and transcendence, and I found myself trembling as I read it. – Evening Standard
