Summary

A New York summer so hot the air is turning yellow.  

Kate, a young woman newly arrived from London, is determined to become the kind of person who is up for it and down for it - and not remotely troubled over how those two semantically opposed phrases could have come to mean the same thing.  

In the sweltering city, she encounters Bill, a once-lauded now booze-sodden novelist, and Inez, his teenage daughter who makes extra cash catering to the sexual fantasies of men she has met online - and falls into a complex infatuation with them both.

Unpleasant

An unpleasant story about two, self indulgent, narcissistic, privileged, white girls in New York.

The whole novel had an unpleasant air of narcissism and snobbery, full of cliches and stereotypes. I tried really hard to like it, because I loved the sound of it.

An extra star for a really good performance, and the fact that it’s set in New York.
