4.0 out of 5 stars Tribeca's the star, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Triburbia (Kindle Edition)
This novel is about the separate lives of eight or nine men who all live with their families in the Tribeca district of New York's Lower Manhattan. We are told they all meet for coffee each morning after taking their children to school, but we never witness any of these get-togethers or the banter between these men. In fact, there is very little dialogue in this book as a whole; it is largely narrative and doesn't have a great deal in the way of plot.
One of the fathers suffers because he looks like a child molester that is being hunted in the area, another is being blackmailed by his children's nanny, and there is some low-level bullying at school involving the daughters of two of the characters. None of these issues are resolved in any satisfactory manner.
The central character in the novel has to be the Tribeca neighbourhood itself; we see the area's gentrification, and the eventual displacement of the artistic characters in the area by Wall Street types. Though a little dull in places, this novel is well-written and worth a try.
