|Jane Borden is a hybrid too horrifying to exist: a hipster-debutante. She was reared in a propert Southern home in Greensboro, North Carolina, sent to boarding school in Virginia, and then went on to join a sorority in Chapel Hill. She next moved to New York and discovered that none of this grooming meant a lick to anyone. In fact, she hid her upbringing for many years--it was easier than explaining what a debutante "does" (the short answer: not much). |
Anyone who has moved away from home or lived in (or dreamed of living in) New York will appreciate the hilarity of Jane''s musings on the intersections of and altercations between Southern hospitality and Gotham cool.
From the Publisher:
A whimsical collection of essays traces the author's haphazard experiences as a Southern debutante who after a youth of boarding schools and shrimp forks transitioned to New York living, where she hid her genteel upbringing and learned the skills of a hipster. Original.
