Guy is a successful talent agent who dates models, pop stars and women he meets on the beach. He’s a narcissistic, judgmental snob who rates women’s looks from one to ten; a racist, homophobic megalomaniac who makes fun of people’s weight; a cheating, lying, manipulative jerk who sees his older girlfriend as nothing more than an adornment. His only real friend, besides his dog, is a loser who belongs to a pick-up artist group. Guy is completely oblivious to his own lack of empathy, and his greatest talent is hiding it all…until he meets someone who challenges him in a way he’s never been challenged before. Darkly funny and utterly offensive, Guy is a brilliant and insightful character study that exposes the twisted thoughts of the misogynist bro next door.
“Being Guy felt horrifically natural, as if he stepped right out of my own debased, politically incorrect sex fantasy. This book is un-put-downable, full of sly modern details that made me laugh and grimace right into the twist ending.” – Miranda July
“GUY is devastating and hilarious. It’s brutal and destructive and life-affirming. It’s a must read. Jowita Bydlowska isn’t just one of this nation’s bravest writers, she’s one of our best.” – Joseph Boyden author of The Orenda
“I love the way that she approaches prose – I think it’s really beautiful.” – Lena Dunham, creator and star of Girls
