Told through a female perspective, this Gatsby-esque tale introduces us to up-and-comer Katey Kontent as the thirties come to a hedonistic end in Manhattan. Katey’s perspective leads us into a world of privilege, charm and identity crises as three characters are bonded forever after one, unexpected New Year’s eve.

Perfect for:

• Those who enjoy living vicariously in pre-war Manhattan.
• Readers drawn to witty prose focused on character over plot.
• Anyone nursing a hangover now that the ‘Gatsby’ hysteria has passed out of theaters.
