Guy thinks he's God's gift to women. But then again, so do women. Guy is a successful talent agent who dates models, pop stars and women he meets on the beach. He's a narcissistic, judgmental snob who rates women's looks from one to ten; a racist, homophobic megalomaniac who makes fun of people's weight; a cheating, lying, manipulative jerk who sees his older girlfriend as nothing more than an adornment. His only real friend, besides his dog, is a loser who belongs to a pickup artist group. Guy is completely oblivious to his own lack of empathy, and his greatest talent is hiding it all?until he meets someone who challenges him in a way he's never been challenged before. Darkly funny and utterly offensive, Guy is a brilliant and insightful character study that exposes the twisted thoughts of the misogynist bro next door.
So reads the Amazon description for Guy, a novel by Canadian writer Jowita Bydlowska.
Looks like an interesting take on some of the themes in Beta Male, looking forward to reading it (but I'll wait until after I'm done my final draft of my own novel, since I don't want to unconsciously pilfer from another novel that at first glance appears to be similar to my own).
