Product Description

Erica is 17 and in her last year of high school. Donny is 42 and everywhere – in her yoga class, at German Club, in her parents’ spare room . . . 
The story of a young woman who finds herself subject to the gravitational field of a charismatic man, The Boyfriend is a cautionary tale about blindly accepting traditional ‘love’ narratives.
This clear-eyed, dismaying and often hilarious examination of sexual desire, trauma and growth is a remarkable debut and a perfect novel for our time.

‘The Boyfriend is original, chilling, funny – a slow burn that ends up being white-hot.’ —Emily Perkins
***
‘Cutting, brave, The Boyfriend is a novel that stays in the bloodstream to haunt and unsettle long after reading.’ —Tracey Slaughter
