The life and soul-lessness of the party,
This review is from: Model Behaviour (Paperback)
This is a wonderfully written, sharp over view of the lives of some of the 'beautiful' people, the lost and the lonely. McInerney creates the impression that he loves and despises these characters at the same time. There is an overwhelming hopelessness about them and this leaves me a little sad. I love the humour and I accept the despairing feel of the written word. Maybe the novel whispers hope quietly, it does,however, scream we are doomed to hide in the shadows. With every piece of writing he seems to get closer to Fitzgerald with a twisted smile.
