Read full description of the books:
In Going Down, debut novelist Jennifer Belle introduces readers to Bennington Bloom, a coed call girl working her way through New York University. Already one of the most talked about first novels of the year, Going Down has received tremendous advance praise. Tama Janowitz calls the novel "a kind of twisted version of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."..Delightfully, sickeningly, hilariously enthralling." And Jay McInerney compares Belle to Lorrie Moore and rocker Liz Phair, labeling the book "a funny, sad, nasty little gem of a novel."
"With a sharp eye for satire and a keen comic sense, Belle chronicles the adventures of nineteen-year-old Bennington Bloom as she wanders between the upscale brothels of New York City and the unsuspecting arms of her new boyfriend. With a father who loves his dog like a daughter, a shrink who is hard of hearing, an ulcer, and tuition (paid in cash) to worry about, Bennington is working overtime to keep it all together. Whether spending the night in an abandoned hotel pool or punching pushy old women on the subway, Bennington is doing what she can to survive*starting at an all-time low, only to find herself going down from there.
With sly humor and an unerring gift for capturing the absurdities of day-to-day life, Jennifer Belle offers a witty take on making it in the city. Honest and observant, Bennington Bloom is a charming narrator who will captivate readers*young and old alike. Funny and intelligent with an endearingly skewed take on life, Belle is the real thing *a literary star in the making.
