By the author of Ducks, Newburyport, shortlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize, Goldsmiths Prize and Saltire Fiction Book of the Year Award

Eloise is a wreck: jobless, friendless, burdened by Damaging Encounters with milkmen. She proclaims herself a hermit, and reduces her contact with the outside world to written communication with the Queen and manufacturers of toilet-roll holders. Yet she yearns hopelessly for roguish American poet George. Freed from the ties of marriage and lettuce soup, George has just arrived in England with the vague intention of finding Eloise, but has been waylaid by pinball.

Fierce and funny, Man or Mango? is a seething, searing, rollicking reflection on love, death, sex, men – and mangoes.
