Stephanie Clifford’s spectacular debut, EVERYBODY RISE, is finally here! The August 2015 LibraryReads pick and September 2015 Indie Next pick is racking up major media reviews:
“There’s little more delicious than watching an ambitious but tragically flawed protagonist brought down—especially in a designer cocktail dress. In EVERYBODY RISE, debut novelist Stephanie Clifford has written a smart tragicomedy about a young woman attempting to infiltrate the Primates of Park Avenue crowd. Evelyn’s fate takes a turn as sharp and smart as her creator’s intellect, making this tale a 21st-century fable of one woman’s reconstruction.” — The Washington Post
“A morality tale of misguided ambition and financial obsession set in the bubble years leading up to the U.S. financial crisis of 2008. [A] Bright Lights, Big City for the gala benefit set.” — NPR
“An intoxicating blend of class, ambition, and money.” — Entertainment Weekly
Listed as a Best Book of Summer by People Magazine, Time, Entertainment Weekly, Marie Claire, and Goop!
The New York Times Book Review will run this Sunday, August 23, with lots more to come!
