Big Swiss: A Novel By Jen Beagin Cover Image
ISBN: 9781982153090
Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: Scribner - August 1st, 2023

Big Swiss is less like a novel and more like an endurance test of second-hand embarrassment. Greta/Rebekah's genuine curiosity and awe of her boss's mysterious new patient, nicknamed Big Swiss, spirals into a relationship based on lies, amorous feelings towards armpits, and jealousy in the fraudulent form of Javier Bardem. My shoulders were in a permanent state of cringing while reading this, but that didn't stop me from racing through this book.
