Our Review of 
Big Swiss

Jen Beagin’s “Big Swiss” introduces us to Greta, a woman who thrives on knowing other people's secrets. This peculiar hobby of hers takes a strange turn when she becomes engrossed in the life of a client she nicknames Big Swiss. Imagine Greta, a transcriptionist for a sex therapist, listening to these deeply personal sessions. She’s never met these people, but through their voices, she paints vivid mental pictures. Big Swiss, as Greta calls her, is a tall woman from Switzerland with striking blue eyes and a charming gap between her front teeth, a detail that makes her even more unforgettable.

Greta’s life is a series of quirky contradictions. Picture her in her cluttered home office, miles away from her clients, dressed in an eccentric ensemble of fingerless gloves, a kimono, and leg warmers. She listens intently to these intimate conversations, feeling an odd connection to the disembodied voices. Yet, despite this deep connection, Greta’s reality is far removed from the lives she transcribes. She’s never seen Big Swiss in person, nor has she ever stepped foot in Switzerland.

The twist in Greta’s mundane routine comes when she unexpectedly encounters Big Swiss in a dog park. This chance meeting catapults Greta into a whirlwind of events that she could never have anticipated. Their relationship, born out of deception and intrigue, challenges both women to confront their realities. Greta’s initial fascination with Big Swiss turns into something more profound and transformative.

“Big Swiss” is not just a novel about secrets and relationships; it’s a deep dive into the human psyche and the complexities of emotional connections. Beagin’s storytelling is both humorous and poignant, painting a vivid picture of Greta’s eccentric world and the unexpected bond she forms with Big Swiss. The narrative seamlessly weaves between Greta’s inner thoughts and the unfolding events, keeping readers hooked from start to finish.

One of the intriguing aspects of this novel is its setting and character dynamics. Greta’s solitary life, filled with odd routines and peculiar habits, contrasts sharply with the vibrant yet mysterious personality of Big Swiss. This juxtaposition creates a compelling narrative that explores themes of loneliness, identity, and the quest for understanding.

Jen Beagin’s ability to craft such relatable and yet extraordinary characters makes “Big Swiss” a worthwhile read. The novel’s humor, combined with its deep emotional insights, offers a unique reading experience. For those who enjoy stories that delve into the intricacies of human relationships with a touch of wit and irony, “Big Swiss” is a gem. It’s a reminder of how connections can form in the most unexpected ways and how these connections can lead to profound personal transformations.
