Description

Amy Jones's Metcalf-Rooke Award-winning short fiction collectionWhat Boys Like brings together a motley assemblage of urban misfits and outsiders, and explores their love/hate relationships with their city and one another. Whether a parent and a child struggling with poverty, sisters trying to find their place in a family, two friends separated by distance and time, or between lovers who find themselves growing apart, Jones's characters grapple with lust, love and loss with an unsentimental eye, while remaining open to the sharp-edged humour caused by the chaotic andrandom nature of life, and the absurdity of the world around them.What Boys Like introduces another thrillingly original literary voice.
