An adventure, a black comedy, a fairy tale of sorts and a romance, Little Gods tells the story of larger-than-life Jean Clocker, whose birth challenges the very balance of nature and whose body resists all attempts to contain it.
A girl -- and later, woman -- of unusual size and strength, fitting in is never an option for Jean, but it takes the chaos of war -- and, later, America -- to persuade her to fully appreciate her extraordinary stature. 'A gorgeous, sprawling novel and a rich, colourful tale' Metro 'Four hundred and thirty-one pages of glory' HELEN OYEYEMI 'A wonderfully inventive ode to being different' FT 'Rich, gaudy, clever and irrepressible' ALI SMITH 'A startlingly original first novel by a remarkable new talent' Independent
