    This is a vicious little novel, smart, efficient, mean, full of terrible people behaving terribly, incisive observations about a certain class of people pretending they had no hand in the state of the world Writers don t come off too well, either Absolutely delightful.

    While this is certainly a smart book, it is probably not the deepest novel ever written still, it is great fun, and sometimes, intelligent fun is than enough to warrant 4 stars Dermansky plays with the discrepancies between self image and the perception of others when she tells the story of a love triangle between a naive, young college student, her mother and her creative writi
