Kissing in Manhattan Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


A breathtaking and stylish debut featuring the Pre-emption, the most glamorous and strange apartment building on earth, and some extraordinary characters: Patrick, the diabolic millionaire with a penchant for nude restraint; Rally, the travel writer lying tied up in Patrick's bedroom during an unusual party; Jacob and Rachel, whose secret nightly bath is suddenly headline news; Hannah, the nymphomaniac perfume heiress; and Douglas, the teacher who is invited to dinner by his star pupil's parents, and propositioned.

Manhattan, shaken, a little bit stirred.

Review by

Reread. This is another collection of linked short stories, about a bunch of New Yorkers who all have some connection to a particular apartment building. It's ... weird and dark, and I kind of like it, but the attitudes to women in this book are very peculiar. I didn't read the last couple of stories about Patrick and James and Rally, because they disturb me too much. So... yeah. Basically, a lot of weird people do weird things and have bizarre attitudes towards sex, relationships and women. I don't know.
