Synopsis

Sharp-tongued, fearsome Paulina meets lovely, listless Fran one night at a house-party held near their privileged New England art school. Together they drift through their classes, critique their fellow students, lavish attention on their curls and nurture their shared dreams of genius. But when their burgeoning friendship tips from intensity into enmity our two heroines find themselves cast out from the halcyon days of art school, divided from one another and set adrift in the increasingly disappointing world of adulthood. Written with wit and brio, dancing between razor-sharp satire and a tender portrait of unrequited love, Paulina & Fran is a beguiling whirl of a novel from a writer of immense talent.

Customer Reviews

I need to call Rachel B. Glaser right now and ask her so many things about this joyous book. Paulina is flighty, brilliant, cruel; Fran is lovely, curled, gentle. When Paulina decides to befriend Fran on a trip to Norway with their art school, so begins a friendship fill with honesty, romantic love and brutality. Paulina has possibly the sharpest tongue of any character and I regularly found myself shrieking at her barbed comments. Glaser's cutting humour leaves no corner of art school and young adult life untouched. My heart was all for them all the way through. The toxic friendship reminded me so so much of Lina and Elena from Ferrante's Neapolitan Saga! Thanks to Harper/Granta for the review copy!
