Charles and Sarah are a typical New York creative class couple -- he's in finance, she works at a hipster small press, yet both are indie-rock East Village veterans who aren't above snorting a little heroin on the weekends. But when they decide to take the logical next step and buy a condo in one of the glass-and-steel skyscrapers now dotting the waterfront of Williamsburg, their lives start to fall apart almost the moment after they sign their mortgage; and this is to say nothing of their creepy neighbors, their possibly haunted apartment, job crises in both their industries, and former friends still in Manhattan who are determined to pull them back into the debauchery. A touching ode to the a--holes ruining Brooklyn, this literary debut of "the Millennial John Updike" is a funny yet wistful dramedy about young urban life during the Great Recession, and you do not need to be a New Yorker yourself to enjoy his smart insights about city living and growing older...although that certainly doesn't hurt.… (plus d'informations)

I RECEIVED A DRC OF THIS TITLE FROM THE PUBLISHER. THANK YOU.

A very important part of keeping good records is that people who want your feedback on the books they've quite graciously given you access to rather expect you'll give it in less than three years. That ship having sailed, to my chagrin, here goes.

This tale of a New York City aspirational-lifestyle couple gets good marks for atmospheric, claustrophobic scene-setting and scope-defining narrative. While I quibble with the rather magisterial pace the author sets, there are many precedents for his use of it. Are you a fan of [We Have Always Lived in the Castle]'s or [Let the Right One In]'s unsettling, eerie happenings? This book will scratch that same bump. But you'll be in the company of uniformly and unhappily one-note characters. ( )
