by Raven Leilani

Meet Edie, a 23-year-old black woman of precarious means who is just about holding down a badly paid publishing job in a nearly all-white office; that means she can only afford a mouse-infested apartment in Brooklyn. She spends a lot of time not painting, which is what she really wants to do, and too much time on unsuitable hook-ups with her awful colleagues. At the start of the novel she begins a relationship with an older, married, white man, Eric, who lives in the New Jersey suburbs and whose wife, Rebecca, has agreed to an open marriage.
A taut, sharp, funny book about being young now. It’s brutal – and brilliant.- Zadie Smith
Razor sharp, provocatively page-turning and surprisingly tender – Lovereading
