Description

Nine men: each of them at a different stage of life, away from home, and striving – in the suburbs of Prague, in a cheap Cypriot hotel – understanding just what it means to be alive, here and now. Tracing an arc from the spring of youth to the winter of old age, All That Man Is brings these separate lives together to show us men as they are – ludicrous and inarticulate, shocking and despicable; vital, pitiable, hilarious, and full of heartfelt longing.

Professional reviews

"Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2016: an ingenious book from the exceptional Granta Best Young British Novelist. "This feels like a great novel driven by its overarching theme: what is my life, here and now, all about? […] Rarely has it been so brilliantly and chillingly spelled out." JOHN HARDING, DAILY MAIL "There is everything to relish about this intelligent, moving, thoroughly European search for the meaning of life […] It's hard to imagine reading a better book this year." MELISSA KATSOULIS, THE TIMES"
