9780446194150: How the Other Half Hamptons

One house. Forty strangers. Add vodka and stir . . .
Every summer, scores of Manhattan twentysomethings take part in an annual ritual with a camp-like culture distinctly its own: the Hamptons sharehouse. When Rachel and her two best friends buy their shares for twenty times each of their bank balances, they're imagining days filled with lazy suntanning and classy clambakes and nights spent rubbing shoulders with the Olsen twins and other celebrities. But once they arrive at 1088 Montauk Highway on Memorial Day weekend, they find that the reality falls a bit short. What looks like any other million-dollar mansion--on the outside--plays host to drunken escapades, explicit nudity, hot tub hookups, hideous hangovers, and juvenile mischief on the inside. As housemates jockey for limited bathroom time and beer pong mania takes over the house, Rachel finds herself wondering if it's possible to find true love--or even just survive the summer--in The Hamptons.

From Publishers Weekly:

Having authored a series of New York Post columns about her Hamptons McMansion summer share experiences, Rosemberg here follows friends Jamie, Rachel and Allison as they plunk down upwards of two grand apiece for the privilege of sharing a bedroom and jockeying for bathroom space on alternate weekends, and set out to find the men of their dreams or, in Jamie's case, passing fancies. Rachel hopes to duplicate too-perfect older sisiter Dana's huband-hunting success; Allison locates some mixed feelings for her previously uninspiring ex-; Jamie's not-too-friendly rivalry with flirtatious housemate Ilana colors her macking. First-time novelist Rosemberg has a sharp eye for telling details and an amusing way of limning the alcohol-soaked, sexually rampant funseeking crowd, but most of the characters blur together (especially the men), and the book never registers much emotional impact.
