Claudia Silver to the Rescue - A Novel
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
“A sharply drawn debut about a tart-tongued Gen-Xer trying to make it in Manhattan. May remind you of HBO’s Girls.” —People Estranged from her Brooklyn family and fired from her job for impropriety, Claudia Silver is having a rough time. So when her younger sister comes to her, urgently in need of help, Claudia wants nothing more than to be the savior she herself so desperately needs. Unfortunately, her attempt at aid turns into a disastrous mistake—filled with missteps, miscalculations, and an ill-advised love affair that disrupts three very different New York households. As Claudia seeks to undo the damage she’s done, she finds herself on a voyage of self-discovery that leads her to seek comfort in the one place she least expected: among her own family. A sparkling debut that transports readers back to 1990s New York City and explores youth, love, and the very human flaws that define us all, Claudia Silver to the Rescue is “a hilarious roller coaster of a ride . . . Witty, assured, surprising” (Kirkus Reviews).
