Little GodsLarge Print - 2009
An adventure, a black comedy, a fairy tale of sorts and a romance, "Little Gods" tells the story of larger-than-life Jean Clocker, whose birth challenges the very balance of nature and whose body resists all attempts to contain it. A girl - and later, woman - of unusual size and strength, fitting in is never an option for Jean, but it takes the chaos of war - and, later, America - to persuade her to fully appreciate her extraordinary stature. 'A gorgeous, sprawling novel and a rich, colourful tale' "Metro" 'Four hundred and thirty-one pages of glory' "HELEN OYEYEMI" 'A wonderfully inventive ode to being different'" FT" 'Rich, gaudy, clever and irrepressible' "ALI SMITH" 'A startlingly original first novel by a remarkable new talent' "Independent"
