"Filthy Animals" de Brandon Taylor

Sobre o Livro:

A group portrait of young adults enmeshed in desire and violence, a hotly charged, deeply satisfying new work of fiction from the author of Booker Prize finalist Real Life

In the series of linked stories at the heart of Filthy Animals, set among young creatives in the American Midwest, a young man treads delicate emotional waters as he navigates a series of sexually fraught encounters with two dancers in an open relationship, forcing him to weigh his vulnerabilities against his loneliness. In other stories, a young woman battles with the cancers draining her body and her family; menacing undercurrents among a group of teenagers explode in violence on a winter night; a little girl tears through a house like a tornado, driving her babysitter to the brink; and couples feel out the jagged edges of connection, comfort, and cruelty.

One of the breakout literary stars of 2020, Brandon Taylor has been hailed by Roxane Gay as "a writer who wields his craft in absolutely unforgettable ways." With Filthy Animals he renews and expands on the promise made in Real Life, training his precise and unsentimental gaze on the tensions among friends and family, lovers and others. Psychologically taut and quietly devastating, Filthy Animals is a tender portrait of the fierce longing for intimacy, the lingering presence of pain, and the desire for love in a world that seems, more often than not, to withhold it.

"Procura-se Namorado" de Alexis Hall

Niel Tomodachi

Wook.pt - Procura-se Namorado

Sobre o Livro:

PROCURA-SE:
Um namorado (falso)
Que seja praticamente perfeito

Luc O’Donnell, infelizmente, é famoso. Bom... mais ou menos. Filho de duas estrelas de rock, Luc não aprecia a atenção que as revistas lhe dão. Com o pai outra vez na ribalta, ele está sob os holofotes e, ao ser publicada uma fotografia sua comprometedora nos jornais britânicos, a sua reputação, já prejudicada, ameaça arruinar-lhe a carreira em ascensão.

Por isso, formula um plano: para limpar a imagem, só precisa de um namorado normal e bonzinho, e Oliver Blackwood é o mais normal e bonzinho que existe: é advogado, vegetariano e basicamente alérgico a qualquer tipo de escândalo. Noutras palavras, é o namorado perfeito. O problema é que, além de serem ambos gays, solteiros e precisarem de um acompanhante para um evento, Luc e Oliver nada têm em comum.

A solução é fingirem que namoram, até que a poeira dos media assente. Mas o problema com os namoros a fingir é que podem parecer-se muito com os namoros a sério.
