Although Elise Perez and Jamey Hyde are next-door neighbors in New Haven, they come from different worlds. Elise grew up in public housing without a father and didn't graduate from high school. Jamey is a junior at Yale, heir to a private investment bank fortune. Nevertheless, the attraction is instant, and what starts out as sexual obsession turns into something greater. The couple moves to Manhattan in search of a new life, wandering through Newport mansions and East Village dives, WASP-establishment yacht clubs, and the grimy blocks below Canal Street, fighting the forces determined to keep them apart. A beautifully written novel that captures the ferocity of young love. -- Adapted from dust jacket.

The attached reviews are far kinder than I am. I found the author to be a bit too fond of her own cleverness reflected by overly wrought descriptions and strained metaphors. There was little character development and the author did nothing to allow us to understand why the characters did what they did.

I disagree with the statement about the author recreating the late 80's, in my opinion this book could have been set anytime in the last 50 years.

Not quite an airplane book, but hardly great literature.
