Description

A six-foot redhead with a killer hourglass body, Irina knows the power of her sexual appeal and wields it mercilessly against everyone – from her best friend (and erstwhile lover) Flo to sweet, shy Eddie, a Tesco checkout boy she persuades to model for her. Boy Parts follows the exploits of Irina Sturges, an acerbic Geordie fetish photographer who specialises in shooting 'interesting'-looking men. Now the idea of reversing gender in this sort of power hierarchy isn’t new—I quite enjoyed Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi exploring this in Fra Keeler—but I quite liked how this touches on ideas of “woke culture” and how society will overlook abuse if they find a way to look at it as subversive.

Yet for all the power Irina exhibits over others, there is still the aspect of a patriarchal society she works within and how dangerous it is for women.The sections written as text messages are amusing as well, with drunk misspellings or autocorrect mistakes that felt true to life.

I wondered, as I started it, whether that would happen here; I was fascinated by Irina immediately, but did I love the story? She’s naive, pathetic, obnoxious, solipsistic, cruel, and superficial…but I found her acts of self-dramatization to be both fascinating and a source of great amusement. i felt bad for flo, she was the collateral damage in all of irina's outbursts, and just in a roundabout friendship with her.Power dynamics have been a topic of necessary criticism in recent years, with a reckoning coming to those who exploit their power to abuse others. she is narcissistic and manipulative and is hyperaware of the power she holds over men and people in general. this is definitely the feeling you’re left with once you reach the rather hallucinogenic end of this book, but the wild ride to get there is pretty fun. the whole thing honestly felt like you were tripping on the same drugs irina, flo and finch were - and i loved it! But digging through her archive throws up repressed memories, and so begins a spiral of self-destruction and violence towards her young male muses during their shoots – “Another dig at his mangled nipple elicits a high-pitched, piggy squeal” – that leaves the reader queasy.
