Writers & Lovers

Andrea says: What a lovely read. I was overtaken by this book. Casey is so sympathetic, you have to love her. She works as a waitress (win right there for me), she used to work in a bookstore (win number 2), she's writing a novel, her mother just died, and she is trying to juggle two men. Not too complicated. What I really loved is how Casey perseveres. Filled with both humor and pathos, this book was my favorite kind of read, one that has you laughing and crying. King is an exceptional writer. While she set scenes up so I knew what was coming, her language and depth of description still took me by surprise. I loved it! Melanie and Katia loved this book too!

Following the breakout success of her critically acclaimed and award-winning novel Euphoria, Lily King returns with an unforgettable portrait of an artist as a young woman.

Blindsided by her mother's sudden death, and wrecked by a recent love affair, Casey Peabody has arrived in Massachusetts in the summer of 1997 without a plan. Her mail consists of wedding invitations and final notices from debt collectors. A former child golf prodigy, she now waits tables in Harvard Square and rents a tiny, moldy room at the side of a garage where she works on the novel she's been writing for six years. At thirty-one, Casey is still clutching onto something nearly all her old friends have let go of: the determination to live a creative life. When she falls for two very different men at the same time, her world fractures even more. Casey's fight to fulfill her creative ambitions and balance the conflicting demands of art and life is challenged in ways that push her to the brink.

Writers & Lovers follows Casey--a smart and achingly vulnerable protagonist--in the last days of a long youth, a time when every element of her life comes to a crisis. Written with King's trademark humor, heart, and intelligence, Writers & Lovers is a transfixing novel that explores the terrifying and exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another.
