My Year of Rest and Relaxation
A darkly funny and savage novel that follows a young, privileged woman as she attempts a year-long experiment in sleep and pharmaceuticals to escape the disappointments of her life. Set in a glittering New York City in the year 2000, the book is both merciless and compassionate, exploring themes of loss, love, and the search for meaning in a world where wealth and success seem so easy. A New York Times bestseller, this showcase of a major young writer is not to be missed.
