Publisher's Summary

"He'd tell me anything, anything, as long as the information went unattributed, as long as no one knew he and I had even met."
Such is the deal Jane, a Harvard valedictorian fresh out of college, strikes with Neil, the intoxicating writer 20 years her senior. It is 1980 in New York City, and the two quickly become lovers, living together in a Chelsea brownstone. Jane is infatuated, but dark secrets lie beneath Neil's polished surface.


What the Critics Say

"This is a stark tale even for Beattie, the master of terseness and angst. But it is also an oddly beautiful distillation of a specific moment both in one fledgling writer’s life and in New York’s celebrity-driven culture, when creative forces gather like a held breath or the sea before a tsunami." (Booklist)

There were some really interesting ideas presented in this story, but overall it didn't feel cohesive as an audiobook -- somewhat choppy and confusing.
