Description

'This is an exceptional work of fiction, which places Greenwell among the very best contemporary novelists' The i

Bulgaria's capital, Sofia, stirs with hope and impending upheaval. Soviet buildings crumble, unrelenting winds lash the city, political protesters flood the streets with song.

Amid this disquiet, a young American teacher prepares to leave the place he's come to call home. In a reflective mood, heightened by his imminent departure, he grapples with the intimate encounters that have marked his years abroad, each revealing startling insights about what it means to seek connection: with those we love, with the places we inhabit and with ourselves.

Written in precise, elegant prose, Cleanness is an almost unbearably poignant book about a man whose life, like so many, has been transformed by the discovery and loss of love.

Chosen as a book of the year in the New Yorker , Daily Telegraph , Observer , New York Times , BBC , TIME and Irish Times .
A New York Times Notable Book of 2020.
Longlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize.
