Publisher Description

A finalist for the National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award, here is an evocative novel about female friendship in the glittering 1980s.

One of The Atlantic’s Great American Novels of the Past 100 Years

Alison and Veronica meet amid the nocturnal glamour of 1980s New York: One is a young model stumbling away from the wreck of her career, the other an eccentric middle-aged office temp. Over the next twenty years their friendship will encompass narcissism and tenderness, exploitation and self-sacrifice, love and mortality. Moving seamlessly from present and past, casting a fierce yet compassionate eye on two eras and their fixations, the result is a work of timeless depth and moral power.

David Given Schwarm ,

Spectacular

I was given this book by Julie who said it was the best book about female friendship. It is not. Is is about fathers and daughters and it is great. Strongly recommended.
