Publisher's Summary

Irina obsessively takes explicit photographs of the average-looking men she persuades to model for her, scouted from the streets of Newcastle. Placed on sabbatical from her dead-end bar job, she is offered an exhibition at a fashionable London gallery, promising to revive her career in the art world and offering an escape from her rut of drugs, alcohol and extreme cinema. 

The news triggers a self-destructive tailspin, centred around Irina's relationship with 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 taboo regions of sexuality and gender roles in the 21st century.

Really find this tedious

l cannot recommend this book.
l recall Helen Garners 'Monkey Grip' which was also heralded as a masterpiece of it's time. Tedious also. For me, 'Boy Parts' highlights human self destructiveness and dresses it up as insightful.

Hooked from start to finish

Evocative, powerful, dark, true, misleading, course-correcting. It feels like the protagonist is just out of reach and she’s keeping you there on purpose. Can’t wait to read more of Eliza Clark.

Dark and haunting

it's not often you can read a book and absolutely love it while hating every single character in it. This is one such book, full of awful people doing awful things, living selfish, shallow lives and basking in the glory of their own ridiculousness. And yet, I loved it.

Dark, but good !

If you like really dark, unreliable narrators this is for you. Don’t even understand really what is real and what isn’t.
