Description

The book has drawn comparisons with Ottessa Moshfegh’s My Year of Rest and Relaxation as well as American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis (the latter most notably during a delightfully disturbing scene when sudden violence in a fancy restaurant for extremely wealthy conservatives has people more concerned if the staff will comp their meal for witnessing violence than actually concerned about the violence), though with a woman instead of Bateman. She was immediately struck by the theatrical potential of the story about an artist who takes explicit pictures of young men. Irina has a sexual encounter where the partner doesn’t listen to her when she says she wants to be on top. Irina obsessively takes explicit photographs of the average-looking men she persuades to model for her, scouted from the streets of Newcastle. Celebrate Northern literary talent, pick up this book, and let the kaleidoscopic vortex sweep you away.

Do I have to smash a glass over the head of every single man I come into contact with, just so I leave a fucking mark?She recently wrote on Twitter: “a good thing about me is that you can enjoy my book without finding out that i went to oxbridge and my parents are both famous journalists like 6 months later and feeling somewhat betrayed. I didn't get much out of this novel, there wasn't enough commentary on society, sex power dynamics, and relationships to make it worthwhile my time. If this book had actually been disturbing maybe then I could have overlooked its pulpy and overt storyline…but it isn’t. Speaking of Tarantino if you thought that Uma Thurman's character in that or Kill Bill have some merit…well, you might like Boy Parts after all. anyway bret easton ellis is a hack and i'm really drifting away from the point i was trying to make here.

Her voice was originally quite similar to my own, then I went back and stripped out all the self-deprecation. I can't wait to read Eliza Clark's next book, but I have to say-- the fact that she wrote a character like this slightly terrifies me. Anyhow, the man who Irina abuses most happens to be a lot younger than her and, unlike her, despite the story's initial attempts at painting her as a struggling artist, her name is known in artsy circles and she can afford her living expense and the type of materials required to print out her edgy photos, he works at Tesco. there are figurines on his windowsill, and he has that akira poster that everyone has, as well as a bruce lee poster, and a bunch of pictures of some idol girl group.The dedication in Eliza Clark’s Boy Parts sets the tone for the tale that follows: “For my mother and father. I also didn't really like the dialogue which I thought was formatted a little weird and maybe could have been a little more realistic? You look like you’ve just been on holiday or something,’) or this (Japenese/Korean girls being the 'same thing'). i think the author did this on purpose to give the reader the same manipulative effect as she gave the other characters in the book. The writing changes slightly, but not in a believably organic way that reflects the main character’s spiralling mental health.
