Conversations with Friends meets The Goon Squad! A brilliantly funny novel of money, sex, race, liberalism and bad behaviour in the post-Obama era, Very Nice is a wickedly smart take on the way we live now. - Rachel Klein never meant to kiss her creative writing professor, but with his long eyelashes, silky hair and the sad, beautiful life he laid bare on Twitter, she does. Zahid Azzam never planned to become a houseguest in his student's sprawling Connecticut home, but with the sparkling swimming pool and the endless supply of strawberries, he does. Becca Klein never thought she'd have a love affair so soon after her husband leaves her for a younger woman, but when her daughter's professor walks into her home, bringing with him a poodle named Princess, she does ... An ingenious blend of sex, secrets and betrayal, Very Nice is a sharp, compulsive take on modern life from one of America's most exciting novelists.
