Product description


"All That Man Is... looks increasingly like the masterpiece of British fiction from the past few years." (David Sexton Evening Standard)

"David Szalay pushed at the fault lines between the novel and short story form in All That Man Is linked tales of European masculinity in crisis, whose effect is monumentally bleak, but which contain some of the best prose to be found in English this year." (Justine Jordan Guardian Books of the Year)

"Szalay's writing is exact and true and always subtly intelligent; this book is bracing and thrilling and chilling." (Tessa Hadley)

"It’s a rare and wonderous event when a novel changes the way you look at the world around you; and this was the case with [All That Man Is]… A worthy winner of the Gordon Burn Prize this year. Gordon Burn would have loved it. Say no more." (William Boyd New Statesman, Book of the Year)

"There is everything to relish about this intelligent, moving, thoroughly European search for the meaning of life ... It's hard to imagine reading a better book this year." (Melissa Katsoulis Times)

Men as they really are... An ingenious book from the exceptional Granta Best Young British Novelist
