A deliciously funny, sharply observed debut of family, love, and class, this zeitgeisty novel follows three women in one wealthy Brooklyn clan
A vibrant and hilarious debut Pineapple Street is riveting, timely, hugely entertaining and brimming with truth. Cynthia D Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of The Nest
Darley, the eldest daughter in the well-connected old money Stockton family, followed her heart, trading her job and her inheritance for motherhood but giving up far too much in the process; Sasha, a middle-class New England girl, has married into the Brooklyn Heights family, and finds herself cast as the arriviste outsider; and Georgiana, the baby of the family, has fallen in love with someone she can t have, and must decide what kind of person she wants to be.
Rife with the indulgent pleasures of life among New York s one-percenters, Pineapple Street is a smart, escapist novel that sparkles with wit. Full of recognizable, loveable if fallible characters, it s about the peculiar unknowability of someone else s family, the miles between the haves and have-nots, and the insanity of first love all wrapped in a story that is a sheer delight.
