Omtale The Swallowed Man
'Haunting. Geppetto's voice, full of wistful overemphases and bewildered revelation, is absorbing as he takes in the oddity of his situation. And the book, sentence by sentence, offers much in which to luxuriate.' - Sunday Times

'Profound and delightful. It is a strange and tender parable of two maddening obsessions; parenting and art-making' - Max Porter
'Strange, moving and musical, it's a delight' - A. L. Kennedy

I am writing this account, in another man's book, by candlelight, inside the belly of a fish. I have been eaten. I have been eaten, yet I am living still.

From the acclaimed author of Little comes this beautiful and haunting imagining of the years Geppetto spends within the belly of a sea beast.

Drawing upon the Pinocchio story while creating something entirely his own, Carey tells an unforgettable tale of fatherly love and loss, pride and regret, and of the sustaining power of art and imagination.
