A New York Love Story
A stunning debut novel set in New York City that explores a relationship from two sides. What happens when life gets in the way?
This is a story about falling in love, and of a relationship that's falling apart.
Evan and Julia are in love, graduating from Yale and moving into a small apartment in a big city in search of the shared future they'd always dreamed about. Taxi cabs and hot pretzels. Woody Allen and Breakfast at Tiffany's. The Met and the Guggenheim. New York is where life is going to begin.
Evan lands a job at a hedge fund and a front row seat to watch the financial crash while Julia - lonely, unhappy at work and shut out of his secretive new life - struggles to find her own way in the adult world, finding comfort in someone from her past.
But t's not long before Evan and Julia are spinning in separate orbits. Trapped by their own secrets, they are both about to realize that they are in too deep - but by this time it might just be too late . . .
This is a story of high expectations and big dreams, of growing up, taking chances and making terrible mistakes.
This is a love story.
But nobody said it ends happily.
