内容简介:

These Days Are Ours by Michelle Haimoff is a shrewdly observed coming-of-age story set in New York, for lovers of GIRLS and Gossip Girl, recommended to Penguin by bestselling author of Fever Pitch and About a Boy, Nick Hornby.

Only six months has passed since 9/11 and New York is still reeling from its devastating after effects.

For Hailey, living back with her parents in their Fifth Avenue penthouse after graduation, life feels like a struggle - to find a job, to come to terms with her new post 9/11 home, and to create a new identity in the adult world she finds herself thrust into.

Whilst all those around her seem to be doing so well -Katie is already working at Morgan Stanley, Randy and Jess seem content to stay out all night and party like they are still students - Hailey is desperate for something more. She just doesn't know what. And to top it all, Michael Brenner, the man she feels sure is the one for her, always seems just out of reach.

But when she meets Adrian, a recent Brown graduate who is wildly different from her privileged milieu, she finds her world view turned upside down and begins to realise that there is more to life and love than she ever believed.

These Days Are Ours is a shrewdly observed and thoughtful portrait of what it means to be young, insecure and trying to find your place in the world.

'Smart, witty, honest, and never anything less than utterly engaging' Jonathan Tropper, author of, How to Talk to a Widower

'Engrossing . . . Haimoff's writing resonates with an authenticity and gravitas that books about girls trying to find themselves in the big city often lack. Her details about elite schools and childhood haunts in Manhattan pepper Hailey's memories in often touching ways. A thoughtful novel for our time' Publishers Weekly
