In Julie Myersons third novel, AmyMoreAn unlikely romance, a psychological mystery, an erotic thriller--Me and the Fat Man is all and none of the above, eluding categorization as skillfully as it limns its characters desperate, love-starved lives. In Julie Myersons third novel, Amy waits tables in a small English city and in her spare time turns tricks for reasons she cant quite articulate, even to herself.

Shes married, but without love or lust or much of anything else. I like you because you dont expect anything, her husband tells her when they first meet. An orphan born in Greece, Amy grew up in a foster home that was creepy and electric, where she was treated with ostensible fairness but always made to feel just how lucky she was that they took her in.

Whats flesh and blood? Not blood and string and fat like on a joint of meat, but just this person smiling and smiling at the stupidest things about you, she muses, and thinks, Id have given anything for that. Then a stranger named Harris walks into the restaurant and promises to give Amy back her past, claiming to have known her mother.

Slowly he draws Amy into his life and introduces her to Gary, the gentle fat man of the title. Prompted by Harris, the two find themselves in an affair- whats surprising is that they fall in love, the last thing either of their lives has led them to expect. But Gary has secrets of his own, and is strangely in Harriss thrall. The key to both of their pasts lies on the Greek island of Eknos, where Amys life comes spiraling together in a way that seems both improbable and true--like everything else in this novel, from its offbeat eroticism to the painful physicality of its prose. Me and the Fat Man is bleak and magical in equal measure.
