Just Call Me a Superhero

(2014)
A novel by

 
Russian-born Alina Bronsky, whose Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine was named a Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly and a Favorite Read of the Year by both The Huffington Post and The Wall Street Journal, returns with a startling new novel about the difficult work of self-acceptance. After an encounter with a dog in which he was worsted, seventeen- year-old Marek begins attending a support group for young people with physical disabilities, which he dubs, "the cripple group," led by an eccentric older man known as The Guru. Marek is dismissive of the other members of the support group, seeing little connection between their misfortunes and his own. The one exception to this is Janne, the beautiful, young wheelchair-bound woman with whom he has fallen in love. When a family crisis forces Marek to face his demons, group or no group, he is in dire need of support. But the distance he has put between himself and The Guru's misshapen acolytes may be too great to bridge. An atmospheric evocation of modern Berlin, a vivid portrait of youth under pressure, and a moving story about learning to love oneself and others, Just Call Me Superhero is destined to consolidate Alina Bronsky's reputation as one of Europe's most wryly entertaining and stylish authors.
