Description:
Frances is twenty-one years old, cool-headed, and darkly observant. A college student in Dublin and aspiring writer, she works at a literary agency by day. At night, she performs spoken word with her best friend Bobbi, who used to be her girlfriend. When they are profiled by Melissa, a well-known journalist, they enter an exotic orbit of beautiful houses, raucous dinner parties and holidays in Provence. Initially unimpressed, Frances finds herself embroiled in a risky ménage a quatre when she begins an affair with Nick, Melissa's actor husband. Desperate to reconcile herself to the desires and vulnerabilities of her body, Frances's intellectual certainties begin to yield to something new - a painful and disorienting way of living from moment to moment.

Our group (average age 50+) had nothing good to say about this book, but did wonder whether iGen-ers might view the book differently. We had no empathy with any of the 4 main characters. Each was self-involved, with no sense of values, and none of them developed as the story progressed. The book could have been set anywhere, as there were no descriptions of either Dublin or France, which might have provided a redeeming feature for the book. Described by members as tedious, boring, drivel and a waste of time. We felt it might have worked better as a short story in a Women’s magazine. Average score of 2.5/10.
