A fearless and savagely funny examination of masculinity under late capitalism, from an electrifying new voice.
Set in Philly one year into Trump's presidency, Sean Thor Conroe's audacious, freewheeling debut follows our eponymous f--cboi, Sean, as he attempts to live meaningfully in a world that doesn't seem to need him. Reconciling past failed selves - cross-country walker, SoundCloud rapper, weed farmer - he now finds himself back in his college city, trying to write, doing stimulant-fuelled bike deliveries to eat. Unable to accept that his ex has dropped him, yet still engaged in all the same f--kery - being coy and spineless, dodging decisions, maintaining a rotation of baes - that led to her leaving in the first place. But now Sean has begun to wonder, how sustainable is this mode? How much f--kery is too much f--kery?
Written in a riotous, utterly original idiom and slyly undercutting both the hypocrisy of our era and that of Sean himself, F--cboi is an unvarnished, playful, and searching examination of what it means to be a man.
"Got under my skin in the way the best writing can." (Sheila Heti)
"Sean Conroe isn't one of the writers there's a hundred of. He writes what's his own, his own way." (Nico Walker)

Well done, bro.
Really enjoyed this book.
You’ll like this if you like stuff like Bret Easton Ellis and such.
Also excellently narrated by the writer which made it that much more authentic.
