**Pre-order Eliza Clark’s next novel, PENANCE, now**
Irina is in a rut. She obsessively takes explicit photographs of average-looking men she scouts from the streets of Newcastle while her dead-end bar job slips away; she’s more interested in drugs, alcohol, and extreme cinema. When she’s offered an exhibition at a fashionable London gallery which promises to revive her career in the art world, it should feel like an escape. 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 . . .
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.
‘Smart, stylish, and very funny.’ LARA WILLIAMS
‘Boundaries are for breaking and if anyone can crash through and reinterpret the fear of our time, Eliza Clark can.’ MSLEXIA
‘A carnival funhouse ride: terrifying, feverish, hilarious.’ JULIA ARMFIELD
