Sylvester's got a bit of a thing for pain. In the silliest of ways, he enjoys it. He likes splinters and stubbed toes, pizza burns and ice cream headaches.
He’s dating the perfect girl in Felicia, a sadistic siren who likes to sharpen doorknobs and electrify jukeboxes.
But when Felicia goes to jail, Sylvester can’t help but run into Natalie, a colossal klutz who topples into everything. The kinda girl who twists her ankle on the toilet and gets injured by plastic reindeer.
It's the start of something fun, until Felicia gets out of prison.
If you enjoy a quirky and funny bit of literary fiction along the lines of A MAN CALLED OVE by Fredrik Backman, DISCWORLD by Terry Pratchett, FIGHT CLUB by Chuck Palahniuk, or NEVEREWHERE by Neil Gaiman (or if you enjoy narcoleptic porcupines and deep-fried pancakes), then this could be the book for you.
"Ouch is one of those novels that deserves to be called 'truly unique.' It is one of the most different novels that I have read over the last two decades" - I Reads You, 2021
