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
