Garth Greenwell’s debut ­novel, What Belongs to You, is already drawing comparisons to Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Unconsoled and Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being. The novel  follows an unnamed American narrator in his search for love, lust and companionship in contemporary Bulgaria. This restless narrator becomes entranced with a male prostitute, Mitko, in an unfamiliar, anxious yet intoxicating world; a world where gay desire is officially taboo. 

"This astonishing debut novels portrait of compromised lust holds its own against classics like Lolita." - The Sunday Telegraph

“Greenwell has a true gift for the observation and articulation of human experience...a powerful, important book.”

So articulate, so eloquent. Some of the best gay literature I've read. More raw and modern than Hollinghurst, for example, representative of the new 'online' generation. A profound and poetic portrayal... More

I could write pages and pages about how 'deeply affecting' and 'masterly told' this story of contemporary love, loss and anguish are, how the prose style is that of a whisper, seducing and... More
