Publisher Description

A New York Times bestseller | A Good Morning America Book Club Pick

“The season’s first beach read, a delicious romp of a debut featuring family crises galore.”— The New York Times

“A delicious new Gilded Age family drama… a guilty pleasure that also feels like a sociological text.” —Vogue

A deliciously funny, sharply observed debut of family, love, and class, this zeitgeisty novel follows three women in one wealthy Brooklyn clan

Darley, the eldest daughter in the well-connected old money Stockton family, followed her heart, trading her job and her inheritance for motherhood but giving up far too much in the process; Sasha, a middle-class New England girl, has married into the Brooklyn Heights family, and finds herself cast as the arriviste outsider; and Georgiana, the baby of the family, has fallen in love with someone she can’t have, and must decide what kind of person she wants to be. 

Rife with the indulgent pleasures of life among New York’s one-percenters, Pineapple Street is a smart, escapist novel that sparkles with wit. Full of recognizable, loveable—if fallible—characters, it’s about the peculiar unknowability of someone else’s family, the miles between the haves and have-nots, and the insanity of first love—all wrapped in a story that is a sheer delight.

Just A Word Or Two ,

No Plot to Speak of

I was more than halfway through before I realized there wasn’t really a story. Narrator did an awesome job and she held my attention. Just when I thought - oh good a plot point was coming - the epilogue was next. A great book to zone out to.

I would like my money back

If you like a story about the 1% falling up then this is for you.

Not sure what all the hype is about

If this turns into an A list film, eh … it would make it better
Just another story about a rich family with minor issues, if any …
