Lucky Norman meets a girl who loves him like no one has ever loved him before. But when he discovers this female creature is not quite what she seems, he is already entangled in the terrifying labyrinth of desire.
Crude, brutal, yet poetic, The Girlfriend, is an archetype of love, loss and life.In the story, the literary inheritance of the past is fused to an acute
modernity of style. The pared-down simplicity of the prose, however,belies the multi-layered complexity of the narrative. The reader is lulled and seduced into a world in which the link between appearance and reality is broken: nothing is quite what it seems, and yet each and every detail is perfectly in place. An absolute pearl of a story that only gives up its secret at the end.
