9780141032757: Submarine

Hello. I’m Oliver Tate, the protagonist.

My ambitions are as follows:
(1) To find out why my father sometimes stays in bed for days at a time.
(2) To find out why my mother’s getting surfing lessons—and probably more—from a hippy-looking twonk.
(3) To lose my virginity before it becomes legal—in just over a year.

There are other, lesser characters in the book: Jordana, my love interest; Zoe, whose only real school friend is a dinner lady; and Chips, an outstanding bully. This book might not change my life. But there is no telling how you will react.

About the Author:

Joe Dunthorne was born in 1982, brought up in Swansea and now lives in London. His debut novel, Submarine, has been adapted for the big screen and was released to critical acclaim in 2011. His stories, poems and journalism have been published in the Guardian, Independent, Financial Times, and Sunday Times in the U.K. His second novel, Wild Abandon, was published by Hamish Hamilton in 2011.

From Publishers Weekly:

Welsh-born Dunthorne delves in his debut into the mind of a troubled 14-year-old boy obsessed with his virginity, his parent's failing marriage and the dictionary. Growing up in Swansea, Wales, Oliver Tate is curious about everything going on around him. Fixated on the personal lives of his parents and neighbors, Oliver compulsively keeps a log of his observations, activities and thoughts, many of which revolve around his new girlfriend, Jordana, she of the fully developed breasts and snogging experience. The two become inseparable and eventually wind up together in the sack. Oliver also believes his mother is having an affair with a family friend, and his growing suspicion leads to a half-baked investigation that only complicates matters at home. As Oliver and Jordana's relationship plays out and the truth about Oliver's mother is revealed, Oliver takes some lumps and learns a few lessons. Some readers will be turned off by Oliver's cruelty—among other things, he bullies an overweight girl at school and poisons Jordana's dog—and others by his precociousness (his log entries include word-of-the-day vocab lessons), but Dunthorne's creation is a true original.
