Men

(2016)
A novel by

 
'As a chronicle of the humiliations and occasional joys of loving someone whose own feelings are more ambiguous...it feels queasily accurate...A sometimes biting, often sharply observed take on a relationship one would surely rather read about than be part of.'-Kirkus

'[Readers will] find themselves enchanted by Darrieussecq's silken, dreamy prose and this sly exploration of female desire and interracial couplings.'-Booklist

'There are few writers who may have changed my perception of the world, but Darrieussecq is one of them.'-Times

'Anyone who has experienced heartbreak will relate but should beware because this is a moody, powerful book.'-The Age

Solange is thirty-something, a mediocre actress, and not a great mother. In Hollywood she falls for a charismatic actor, Kouhouesso, who wants to direct a movie of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness-in Africa.

Solange follows her man to Africa, determined to play a main role in both his film and his affections. But nothing goes to plan in this witty examination of romance, movie-making and cliches about race relations. After all, there's no guarantee you'll be loved by the one you love.
