This novel's narrator is hot, rich, and utterly miserable. With the help of a deranged psychiatrist, she constructs a plan to sleep away the pain with a truckload of pharmaceuticals. I fell hard for this bitter, hysterical trip through one young woman's despair and heavily medicated pursuit of happiness. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor

There are some novels I don't want to speak too much about; I don't want to dilute the thrall they held me in. This book was beautiful and mournful and full of raw wonder, and it lives inside me now. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor

Published: Catapult - January 9th, 2018

Set in a New York dazed by and crazed with summer heat, this novel follows a young, searching British woman who finds herself powerfully drawn to a washed up middle-aged writer and his beautiful, defiant daughter. Made dumb by and aching with desire, these characters move into and out of each other's orbit, seeking things they cannot define. Hoby's magnetic characters occupy such a strikingly, precisely rendered world that passing over this book would be denying yourself an enormous pleasure. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor
