Synopsis

Winner of the Debut of the Year Award at the British Book Awards.

Shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize.



On an unseasonably warm autumn day, an American teacher enters a public bathroom beneath Sofia's National Palace of Culture. There he meets Mitko, a charismatic young hustler, and pays him for sex. He returns to Mitko again and again over the next few months, their relationship growing increasingly intimate and unnerving.



As he struggles to reconcile his longing with the anguish it creates, he's forced to grapple with his own fraught history: his formative experiences of love, his painful rejection by family and friends, and the difficulty of growing up as a gay man in southern America in the 1990s.



Startlingly erotic and immensely powerful, Garth Greenwell's What Belongs to You tells an unforgettable story about the ways our pasts and cultures, our scars and shames can shape who we are and determine how we love.



Longlisted for the National Book Award in Fiction.

A Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.

A Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction.

Hard to believe this is a debut - the story of love, loss and learning Bulgarian so beautifully captures the essence of alien lands, languages and the way in which our lives spiral ever away from interpretation, by even those closest to us.
