Our Bookseller says:

“This is a literary soap opera about horrible humans behaving horribly, which is to say: this novel is smart, succinct, and full of character-led drama. Dermansky skewers every one of her character’s personas, no iteration of our society left unscathed, including that of the writer herself. I read this in a single sitting, the multiple points of view driving the plot forward to its inevitable end.” <3 Miranda

Rachel Klein never meant to kiss her creative writing professor, but with his long eyelashes, his silky hair, and the sad, beautiful life he laid bare on Twitter, she does, and the kiss is very nice. Zahid Azzam never planned to become a houseguest in his student’s sprawling Connecticut home, but with the sparkling swimming pool, the endless supply of Whole Foods strawberries, and Rachel’s beautiful mother, he does, and the home is very nice. Becca Klein never thought she’d have a love affair so soon after her divorce, but when her daughter’s professor walks into her home, bringing with him an apricot standard poodle named Princess, she does, and the affair is…a very bad idea.
