9780312377984: POSH: A Novel

Inside Manhattan's private school world of fast-paced over-the-top entitlement and superficial gloss lurk many secrets―the secrets of emotionally charged teenage and adult lives. In this eloquent novel set during one class's senior year at the Griffin School, among the queen bees and the wannabes, Michael Avery and Julianne Coopersmith begin a relationship. Their backgrounds are so different―he's beyond privileged and rich, her mother is a writer who drives a cab―but it's the rich boy who ends up being the needy one, with an emotional hole they both believe only Julianne can fill. Their parents are not immune from internal torture either―Michael's mother finds it easier to love her Chinese Crested Hairless than her own child, and Julianne's mother's protective instincts have unexpected consequences.

Fast-paced, gently satirical, yet deeply felt, Posh is a poignant and knowing novel.

From the Inside Flap:

It' s a world of over-the-top entitlement and tribal customs, a world of surface interactions and deep needs-- a world of private schools and privilege. Griffin is a preparatory school on Manhattan' s Upper East Side with the best students-- and the richest parent body-- the city has to offer. The emotionally charged lives of the teenagers and adults that collide and intersect at Griffin include those of:

--Kathryn " Lazy" Hoffman is the headmistress at the Griffin School, in the midst of an affair she almost can' t remember why she started. Lazy ministers to children, but her cross to bear is the parents-- especially those who wonder why their little darlings aren' t going to Harvard

--Michael Avery, smart driven, and clearly on the fast track to Cambridge, but so troubled that he becomes a burden to his girlfriend

--Julianne Coopersmith, a sweetly compassionate child of divorce who happily wears designer hand-me-downs from her best friend, and adores Michael even in the face of his neediness and meltdowns

--Susan Avery, who is detached from her brilliant but tortured son, and finds it' s easier to love her Chinese Crested Hairless than her own child

--Dee Coopersmith, whose life driving a cab couldn' t be a bigger contrast to the rest of the parent body at Griffin, but whose sense of self and fierce protection of her daughter have unexpected consequences

Fast-paced, gently satirical, yet deeply felt, POSH is a surprisingly poignant and knowing novel distinguished by its spare and elegant prose.
