Waterstones Says

Darkly comic and utterly unputdownable, Beagin's freewheeling novel centres on the unconventional relationship between the quirky Greta and the enigmatic Big Swiss.

Soon to be a major HBO series starring Jodie Comer

Greta liked knowing people's secrets. That wasn't a problem. Until she met Big Swiss. Big Swiss. That's Greta's nickname for her - she is tall, and she is from Switzerland. Greta can see her now: dressed top to toe in white, that adorable gap between her two front teeth, her penetrating blue eyes. She's a head-turner: including the heads of infants and dogs. Well that's how Greta imagines seeing her; they haven't actually ever met in person. Nor has Greta actually ever been to Switzerland.

Greta and Big Swiss are not in the same room, or even the same building. Greta is miles away, sitting at a desk in her own house, wearing only headphones, fingerless gloves, a kimono, and legwarmers, transcribing this disembodied voice. What Greta doesn't know is that she's about to bump into Big Swiss in the local dog park. A new - and not entirely honest - relationship is going to be born. A relationship that will transform both of their lives. . .

“May be too absurd for some”

There were bits of this book I found funny and really liked, but also parts of it really didn't work!

I think the premise is interesting, and I enjoyed the absurdity and whimsy and descriptions of the... More

“Slightly deranged, endlessly entertaining, weirdly touching.”

'Big Swiss' is slightly deranged, endlessly entertaining, and weirdly touching. Beagin's writing is sharp and funny but never derisive; there's a definite warmth in even the strangest of situations... More

“A kooky and funny romp of a novel”

'Big Swiss' is a kooky, funny, and very gripping romp of a novel, exploring the differences in processing trauma, a humorous look at new age psychology/therapy, and queerness. The absurd but witty humour and... More
