Overview

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.

Reviews

"Guy is not just a wonderful first novel, it is a wonderful novel. It will turn you on, disturb you, make you think and keep you reading past your bedtime. " - Winnipeg Review

"What is truly terrifying about Guy is not the enemy pretending to be a friend to women that Bydlowska has created, but the fact that you?ve likely met him in your own life many times before. Guy is the all-too-common charming abuser unchecked, able to get exactly what he wants because he moves through the world entirely undetected. " - The Globe and Mail

"Bydlowska has captured a element of the human condition here. I kept flashing back to the plot of Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho and while Bydlowska's Guy is not as ultra violent as Patrick Bateman, he is indeed as vile at times. There is a conceit about him that we all somehow can relate to ? we know somebody like that ? and in doing so a reader takes time out to pause to consider their realities. " - Library of Pacific Tranquility
