it was amazing

I enjoyed this book. Kate Christensen's characters are prickly but funny and believable. She sweeps you up into their daily lives and emotional inner dialogues in a funny and yet not overly self-indulgent way. Though they may be self obsessed, they are also self critical and embrace their quirks, damaging self destructive behaviours and foibles as well as their charms. Jeremy Thrane is a vain superficial seeming gay guy living in NYC yet he looks out at the world with an intelligent cynical but endearing eye. He has a heart buried in that superficial wrapping that pokes out and grabs him unexpectedly from time to time and shows his sensitive side and his real attachment to his interesting unorthodox family members. NYC is like another character in her books; vibrant, tough, exciting and grody at the same time.
