Adventurously atypical Victorian ladies Rebecca and Flora Hawes travel from Chicago to the Sinai desert with their young butler and maid in training on an expedition in search of a rumored biblical manuscript.
On an unseasonably warm autumn day, an American teacher walks down a staircase beneath Sofia´s National Palace of Culture, looking for sex. Among the stalls of a public bathroom he encounters Mitko, a charismatic young hustler. He returns to Mitko again and again over the next few months, and their trysts grow increasingly intimate and unnerving as the enigma of this young man becomes inseparable from that of his homeland, Bulgaria, a country with a difficult past and an uncertain future. Garth Greenwell´s What Belongs to You is a stunning debut about an American expat struggling with his own complicated inheritance while navigating a foreign culture. Lyrical and intense, it tells the story of a man caught between longing and resentment, unable to separate desire from danger, and faced with the impossibility of understanding those he most longs to know.
´An exquisitely written investigation of desire and shame´ Guardian ´A rich, important debut, an instant classic to be savored by all lovers of serious fiction´ New York Times Book Review On an unseasonably warm autumn day, an American teacher enters a public bathroom beneath Sofia´s National Palace of Culture. There he meets Mitko, a charismatic young hustler, and pays him for sex. He returns to Mitko again and again over the next few months, their relationship growing increasingly intimate and unnerving. As he struggles to reconcile his longing with the anguish it creates, he´s forced to grapple with his own fraught history: his formative experiences of love, his painful rejection by family and friends, and the difficulty of growing up as a gay man in southern America in the 1990s. Startlingly erotic and immensely powerful, What Belongs to You tells an unforgettable story about the ways our pasts and cultures, our scars and shames can shape who we are and determine how we love. ´This astonishing debut novel´s portrait of compromised lust holds its own against classics like Lolita´ Sunday Telegraph ´Greenwell´s novel impresses for many reasons, not least of which is how perfectly it fulfils its intentions´ James Wood, New Yorker
