Adelle Waldman - The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

I am very excited to announce we have the opportunity to meet a new literary genius to arrive on the scene! Adelle Waldman is a journalist by trade and her début novel has already received glowing reviews. She's only over from the US for a week so we're thrilled to host her at the GBC!

“Adelle Waldman just may be this generation’s Jane Austen, as she skewers the mating mores of today’s aristocrats, the young literary elite of Brooklyn, N.Y., in her funny and at times painfully acute debut novel… The great achievement of this book [is] Waldman’s ability to so completely inhabit this immature man. Nate’s solipsistic and often sexist agonizing feel real. Even being of an age and a gender more prone to want to slap the self-involved Nate upside the head, I found myself sympathizing with his emotional torment.”
—Clea Simon, The Boston Globe

Book Synopsis:

Nathaniel Piven is a rising star in Brooklyn's literary scene. After several lean, striving years and an early life as a class-A nerd, he now (to his surprise) has a lucrative book deal, his pick of plum magazine assignments, and the attentions of many desirable women: Juliet, the hotshot business journalist; Elisa, Nate's gorgeous ex-girlfriend, now friend; Hannah, lively and fun and 'almost universally regarded as nice and smart, or smart and nice'.

In this twenty-first-century literary enclave, wit and conversation are not at all dead. But is romance? In The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. Adelle Waldman plunges into the psyche of a sensitive, flawed, modern man - to reveal the view of the new world from his garret window, and the view of women from his overactive mind.
