Kelly + Victor

  • Paperback
A dark and disturbing new novel about sadomasochism — from the acclaimed author of Grits and Sheepshagger. A bar in Liverpool, January 2, 2000. Victor, coming down from the recent global party, meets a girl. Some time later that night he is in her bed. This, he thinks, is the best sex he's ever had. Kelly, coming down after the recent global party, meets a boy. Some time later that night he is in her bed. This, she thinks, is the best sex she's ever had. So the story of Kelly & Victor progresses, through two mirror-image narratives: the spiraling intensity of a sexual obsession traced to an inevitable, devastating conclusion. Set against a backdrop of urban despair, spiritual absence and a world swamped with pornography, it is, above all, a love story — or what the 21st-century will allow of one.

A bar in Liverpool, January 2nd 2000: Kelly and Victor, both coming down from the recent global party, meet, and some time later that night they are in her bed. The story of Kelly and Victor progresses, through two mirror-image narratives—a story of the growth and spiralling intensity of a sexual obsession, traced to its inevitable, devastating conclusion. Set against a backdrop of urban despair, spiritual absence and a world swamped with pornography, this is a novel about yearning for union, for purity, and for magic and mystery in a world that denies them all.
Niall Griffiths was born in Liverpool in 1966 and now lives in Wales. He has published six other novels: Grits, Sheepshagger, Stump, Wreckage, Runt and A Great Big Shining Star. The film of Kelly + Victor was released to critical acclaim in 2012.
"The range of Griffiths's achievement is as exhilarating as the reach of his ambition" Guardian "Kelly + Victor is a book breathing at the limits of experience, its protagonists martyrs to feeling in a world gone numb" Independent "With Kelly + Victor Griffiths has completed his transition into a literary voice for the 21st century" The Scotsman
