Synopsis

'An existential thriller written in prose that points the way to the future' Zadie Smith 'Fight Club for girls' Vogue A lives with B. B seems to be becoming more and more like A. If A's boyfriend, C, likes A because A is A, but now B is the same as A, where does that leave A? And what has happened to the family across the street, who left one afternoon out of nowhere, covered in sheets with holes cut out for the eyes? 'Comical, malignant and addictive' Adam Thirlwell 'As good a debut as I've ever read' Zadie Smith 'This book will unsettle you; this book will make you feel intensely alive' Buzzfeed

Staff Choice

You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine is wry, surreal, and so, so exciting in the way that a great new thing is. Jonathan Safran Foer hit me the same way at 19, as did Maggie Nelson last year. Alexandra Kleeman creates a world where distinctions between reality and fantasy blur, life is a parody of TV and the act of eating becomes an empty gesture. It's a smart, funny and throughly impressive debut about contemporary culture written with panache and verve. A total winner; I can't wait to see what she does next.
