Synopsis

From the Orange Prize-winning author of We Need to Talk About Kevin.

`[Shriver's] best novel yet' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

Pandora has looked up to her older brother Edisonsince they were children. Now she revels in the anonymityof her suburban Iowa life, while her brother basks in thelimelight as a New York jazz musician. But when Edisonarrives in Iowa, suddenly in need of a place to stay, Pandoraliterally doesn't recognize him. The once slim, hip pianisthas gained hundreds of pounds. What happened?

Soon Edison's appalling diet and know-it-all monologuesare driving Pandora and her husband Fletcher insane.And it's only a matter of time before Fletcher delivershis wife an ultimatum, it's him or me.

With Shriver's distinctive wit and ferocious energy,Big Brother not only examines why we overeat, but asksmore pressingly still: just how much should you sacrificefor someone who refuses to be saved?
