Product description

Review

'Captivating - a modern day odyssey that leads us via porn stars and artists and houses falling off cliffs into the heart of a singular character.' -- Kamila Shamsie, author of A God in Every Stone 'Tommy Wieringa's ambitious novel is a brilliant exploration of the uneasy transition from adolescence into adulthood - the restlessness, yearning for stability, irrational decisions and erotic obsessions.' The Independent 'Beautifully lyrical storytelling under a banner of gray skies and heavy hearts; one gorgeous, epic reminder than no matter what skeletons we have in our closet, we all try our best and our hardest to do well by the ones we love - as Morrissey has sung: 'That's how people grow up.' -- Dan Kennedy, host of The Moth podcast 'Although perfectly charming as picaresque, the tragedy of Unger's plight registers just as strongly as its understated oddness ... Wieringa plays for keeps.' Publishers Weekly (starred review) 'A potent, emotionally moving, beautifully realized novel about a young man seeking to understand his difficult, eccentric parents ... Wieringa masterfully examines the complex and often agonizing work that many of us undertake to live our own healthy, independent, adult lives.' Library Journal 'The poet Philip Larkin's famous observation that your mom and dad really mess you up is aptly illustrated in this offbeat, atmospheric novel ... [a] haunting book.' Kirkus Reviews 'Tommy Wieringa's inventive coming-of-age novel [involves] deeply flawed characters, maddening in their poor choices, but in Wieringa's nimble hands, they elicit our sympathy.' Cleveland Plain Dealer 'Though anchored by emotional authenticity, Little Caesar reimagines the coming-of-age novel as surreal picaresque, the search for adult identity a wild and elusive quest with allusions to everything.' Sydney Morning Herald

Sam Garrett has translated some forty novels and works of non-fiction. He has won prizes and appeared on shortlists for some of the world's most prestigious literary awards, and is the only translator to have twice won the British Society of Authors' Vondel Prize for Dutch-English translation.
