From the Orange Prize-winning author of We Need to Talk About Kevin. `[Shriver's] best novel yet' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Pandora has looked up to her older brother Edison since they were children. Now she revels in the anonymity of her suburban Iowa life, while her brother basks in the limelight as a New York jazz musician. But when Edison arrives in Iowa, suddenly in need of a place to stay, Pandora literally doesn't recognize him. The once slim, hip pianist has gained hundreds of pounds. What happened? Soon Edison's appalling diet and know-it-all monologues are driving Pandora and her husband Fletcher insane. And it's only a matter of time before Fletcher delivers his wife an ultimatum, it's him or me. With Shriver's distinctive wit and ferocious energy, Big Brother not only examines why we overeat, but asks more pressingly still: just how much should you sacrifice for someone who refuses to be saved?

Reviews

`Glorious, fearless ... possibly her very best' OBSERVER `Her best novel yet' INDEPENDENT `A brilliant writer. She has a strong, clear and strangely seductive voice. The characters are strong . . . so moving it will make you want to gasp or cry' SUNDAY TIMES `Piercingly bleak in tone and formally original in execution . . . reminding us, not a moment too soon, that Shriver is a novelist as well as a polemicist' DAILY TELEGRAPH `From the start I was gripped. Once again, Shriver has provided much food for thought' DAILY MAIL `Lionel Shriver's Big Brother has the muscle to overpower its readers. It is a conversation piece of impressive heft' NEW YORK TIMES `Big Brother finds the funny - and the pathos - in fat' USA TODAY `Brilliantly done' EVENING STANDARD `Pandora is a masterly creation' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
