Descrizione

This program is read by the author.

In the highly anticipated follow-up to his beloved debut, What Belongs to You, Garth Greenwell deepens his exploration of foreignness, obligation, and desire

Sofia, Bulgaria, a landlocked city in southern Europe, stirs with hope and impending upheaval. Soviet buildings crumble, wind scatters sand from the far south, and political protesters flood the streets with song.

In this atmosphere of disquiet, an American teacher navigates a life transformed by the discovery and loss of love. As he prepares to leave the place he's come to call home, he grapples with the intimate encounters that have marked his years abroad, each bearing uncanny reminders of his past. A queer student's confession recalls his own first love, a stranger's seduction devolves into paternal sadism, and a romance with another foreigner opens, and heals, old wounds. Each echo reveals startling insights about what it means to seek connection: with those we love, with the places we inhabit, and with our own fugitive selves.

Cleanness revisits and expands the world of Garth Greenwell's beloved debut, What Belongs to You, declared "an instant classic" by The New York Times Book Review. In exacting, elegant prose, he transcribes the strange dialects of desire, cementing his stature as one of our most vital living writers.

Recensioni dei lettori

  • (2/5)
    Good quality audio book, the author narrates the book himself but I simply didn’t like this book. If it weren’t for an audio book I would’ve dnfed it back at chapter 2.
  • (5/5)
    Even better than What Belongs to You. Expanded, more complex, more satisfying.
  • (5/5)
    A book that's very honest and raw about navigating relationships with places, love, sex and trauma as a queer person.
  • (4/5)
    Highly sexualized but a realistic and honest portrait of the conflicts of gay identity.
