Little Gods

by Anna Richards - £8.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330464413 | ISBN 10: 0330464418

A glorious, towering triumph of a novel from the author Ali Smith called 'a huge new talent'.
 
An adventure, a black comedy, a fairy tale of sorts and a romance, Little Gods tells the story of larger-than-life Jean Clocker, whose birth challenges the very balance of nature and whose body resists all attempts to contain it.
 
A girl and later, woman of unusual size and strength, fitting in is never an option for Jean, but it takes the chaos of war and, later, America to persuade her to fully appreciate her extraordinary stature.
