Lucky Girls Stories (Paperback)
|Author: Nell Freudenberger|
|First highlighted in the "New Yorker" fiction issue, "Lucky Girls" is a collection of five novella-like stories that take place mostly in Asia--the debut of a new talent and a "New York Times" Notable Book.|
From the Publisher:
These five stories follow young women living far from home, coping with new and often unfamiliar rules, as they confront the compelling circumstances of adult love. The rich, unforgettable tales in this collection, set in Southeast Asia and on the Indian subcontinent, showcase a writer of exceptional talent, one of today's most gifted and exciting young voices.
These five long stories by a heralded newcomer to the literary world include "The Tutor," about a teenager and the man who is coaching her for the SATs, and "The Orphan," about an American working in Bangkok whose brother belongs to a club that seeks to give away their rich parents' money.
