Overview

“Terrific. It’s the kind of book Jane Austen would’ve written had she been male and hipper-and had Internet access.”
-Chicago Tribune


With his debut novel, Utterly Monkey, Nick Laird won acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic for his deft humor and sharp-eyed powers of observation. In this new novel, disaffected thirty-something college teacher David introduces his former teacher, American artist Ruth Marks, to his friend and flatmate James Glover, unwittingly setting in place a love triangle loaded with tension, guilt, and heartbreak. Set in the London art scene awash with new money and intellectual pretension, Nick Laird’s insightful and drolly satirical novel explores the nature of contemporary romance among damaged souls whose hearts and heads never quite line up long enough for them to achieve true happiness.

Praise

” At once a penetrating work of literary analysis and a riveting historical narrative.”
-Nathaniel Philbrick
