Speedboat : With an introduction by Hilton Als Paperback / softback

Part of the W&N Essentials series

Paperback / softback

Description

Jen Fain is a journalist negotiating the fraught landscape of 1970s New York.

Party guests, taxi drivers, brownstone dwellers, professors, journalists, presidents, and debutantes fill these dispatches from the world as she finds it. Simultaneously novel, memoir, commonplace book, confession, and critique - Speedboat is funny, disturbing, cutting, brilliant unlike anything that had come before.

Since it burst onto the scene in the 1970s, it has enthralled generations of readers and been a touchstone for writers including David Foster Wallace, Claudia Rankine and Jenny Offill. With an introduction by Hilton Als
