About this deal

But the news triggers a self-destructive tailspin, drawing in her obsessive best friend and a shy young man from her local supermarket who has attracted her attention . the opinions and impressions i will express in this review are entirely subjective and i am not in fact stating ‘irrefutable facts’. The reason why I did not like this book has less to do with her being an unlikable c*nt and more to do with her being boring as f*ck. i usually don’t like when books are so boldly twenty-first century, but the way they were laced in felt natural and didn’t ruin the flow of the narrative. This has notably addressed the entertainment industry, with horror stories surfacing of monsters of anywhere from massive wealth like Harvey Weinstein to niche fame like Ryan Adams abusing and harassing women and many have paused to consider how we process the art of monstrous men (such was the title of Claire Dederer’s viral essay, which you can read here).

but I think that's maybe just because if you tend towards them, you tend to keep a place in your heart for all of them. Photograph: Richard Kenworthy View image in fullscreen ‘Part of me does think that London is this complete capitalist cesspit where all of the money goes’ .Why bother with all that gaslighting of your acquaintances if you then don’t give a sh*t about being exposed. She flips gender roles on their head, pushes the boundaries of consent beyond their limit, and everything seems unstable. Key to this book are the gazes into power structures that shatters any rose colored glasses they might try to hide behind. I hate using the term likability,” says director Sara Joyce, who doesn’t think the book is asking you to like or dislike Irina. Boy Parts is the incendiary debut novel from Eliza Clark, a pitch-black comedy both shocking and hilarious, fearlessly exploring the taboos of sexuality and gender roles in the twenty-first century.

It made me really sad but it wasn't as graphic as what happens to the people in this book, which somehow still didn't gross me out as much as the opening paragraph where the heroine is about to drunkenly regurgitate a sandwich. There’s something dangerous about the character and the way that she approaches the world, Joyce thinks. And I am fond of the 'she’s not feeling too good' subgenre, contemporary books that are characterized by a caustic tone and explore the lives of women who are, you guessed it, not feeling too good and are depicted as alienated and self-sabotaging … I also do not have a problem with books combining dark humor with violence, My Sister the Serial Killer is a fave of mine. Boy Parts follows the exploits of Irina Sturges, an acerbic Geordie fetish photographer who specialises in shooting 'interesting'-looking men. with more accounts of male photographers abusing their power over female models (emily ratajowski, for example), this power dynamic is flipped on its head when irina pays no heed to her models who are essentially her victims.Flo (i had to check her name, that's how memorable she is) is a rip off of Reva from MYORAR who exists to be the classic female friend in love with our female protagonist who does not and will not ever reciprocate her feelings. Yet for all the power Irina exhibits over others, there is still the aspect of a patriarchal society she works within and how dangerous it is for women. she manipulates everyone around her and is just downright cruel most of the time, but she’s also very witty and you’re further drawn into the story just to find out what she’s going to say next.
