Item Details

Random House, Inc.
In his breathlessly paced new novel Jay McInerney revisits the nocturnal New York of Bright Lights, Big City. Alison Poole, twenty going on 40,000, is a budding actress already fatally well versed in hopping the clubs, shopping Chanel falling in and out of, lust, and abusing other people's credit cards. As Alison races toward emotional breakdown, McInerney gives us a hilarious yet oddly touching portrait of a postmodern Holly Golightly coming to terms with a world in which everything is permitted and nothing really matters.

Baker & Taylor
Alison Poole, an aspiring actress whose numerous fixations include drugs, parasitic familiarity with fame and lust, careens through life in monied Manhattan, a society consuming itself in reckless affluence
