Publisher's Summary

Originally published by Atlantic Monthly Press in 1988 and now reissued by Grove Press, The Story of My Life by Jay McInerney is a hilarious, sobering portrait of 1980s New York City featuring 20-something actress Alison Poole and her coterie of club-hopping, coke-addicted friends. In this breathlessly paced novel, McInerney revisits the nocturnal New York of Bright Lights, Big City. Alison Poole is a budding actress already fatally well versed in hopping the clubs, shopping Chanel, falling in and out of lust, and abusing other people's credit cards. As Alison races toward emotional breakdown, McInerney gives us a funny yet oddly touching portrait of a postmodern Holly Golightly coming to terms with a world in which everything is permitted and nothing really matters.
©1998 Jay McInerney. Story of My Life is based on a story that appeared in Esquire. An excerpt from the novel was published in the premiere issue of Smart magazine. Recorded by arrangement with Grove Atlantic, Inc. (P)2014 Audible Inc.

There nothing here.

I was hoping for some deeper meaning our some lurid storyline. . . something. Instead this is just a well written, vapid novel about mid-twenties skanks.
